Aya said that Danlami Shauibu and Kabiru Amodu were initially arrested on Oct. 16, by a Police team, following an intelligence-led operation.

He said the operation was conducted to curb criminal activities, especially high volume of kidnappings in Itobe and its environs particularly, the Itobe-Anyigba highway.

The PPRO revealed that during preliminary investigations, one of the suspects gave useful information that led to the arrest of the third suspect, Adejoh Tijani of the same address on Oct. 22, at about 8:30am.

The Kogi Command’s image maker said upon a search of their houses, the Police recovered one cut to size single barrel gun and a locally made pistol.

Other items recovered, according to him, were one POS Machine, one battle axe, a face mask, five live cartridges and assorted charms.

He said that efforts were being made to arrest other members of the gang, and that the suspects would be charged to court at the conclusion of investigations.

To this end, he said, the state Commissioner of Police Idrisu Dauda Dabban has commended the officers for their thoroughness and the breakthrough, while assuring members of the public of the Command’s determination, in synergy with other security agencies in the state, to ensure adequate security of lives and property.
