The Kaduna State Police Command has announced the capture of Muhammad Bello, a notorious bandit known to be an accomplice of the infamous Dogo Haliru. This successful operation followed the rescue of three kidnapped individuals who were abducted along the Kindandan-Dogon Dawa Road in the Birnin Gwari local government area.

In a statement issued by ASP Mansir Hassan, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) for Kaduna Command, the state’s Commissioner of Police, CP Ali Audu Dabigi, commended the officers for their exemplary work. He also directed intensified confidence-building patrols in the area to maintain safety and security.

"On May 21, 2024, at about 14:50hrs, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Kidandan Division received a distress call reporting that armed bandits had blocked the Kidandan-Dogon Dawa Road and kidnapped an unspecified number of individuals," Hassan stated.

In response, the DPO swiftly mobilized personnel from the Police Mobile Force (PMF), attached to Operation Whirl Punch in Galadimawa, and dispatched them to the scene in an Armored Personnel Vehicle (APV).

"Upon arrival, the police team engaged the bandits in a fierce gun battle," Hassan reported. Despite the bandits managing to deflate two tires of the APV, the police successfully rescued three kidnapped victims: Ashiru Abubakar, 35, from Batagarawa, Katsina State; Ahmed Ibrahim from Dutsen Ma, Katsina State; and Shehu Kabiru, 30, from Kidandan.

Later the same day, at around 19:00 hours, operatives from Operation Yaki, acting on technical intelligence provided by the Technical Intelligence Unit at Force Headquarters, Abuja, successfully arrested Muhammad Bello. The 30-year-old resident of Yan Bokolo area, Malalin Gabas, Igabi local government area, Kaduna state, is believed to be an accomplice to Dogo Haliru, a notorious kidnapper who has terrorized Zamfara, Katsina, and the Kaduna-Abuja expressway.

Preliminary investigations have confirmed Bello's association with Haliru, significantly advancing efforts to dismantle the bandit network plaguing the region.

Commissioner Dabigi praised the officers for their bravery and effective use of intelligence. He emphasized the importance of ongoing security measures, stating, "Intensified confidence-building patrols will ensure continued safety and security for the community."

The successful operations highlight the Kaduna State Police Command's commitment to combating banditry and kidnapping, reinforcing the community's trust in law enforcement efforts to maintain peace and order.

To be rehabilitated and recruited into the same Nigerian security agencies that arrested him. Because he is from the North.
