“Further to the Command’s renewed commitment to checkmating crimes and criminality in the State, on the 29/9/2023, the Command operatives attached to Girei Divisional Police Headquarters, in collaboration with Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, disconnected the suspects,” the police stated.
The release, signed by the state Police Public Relations Officer, Suleiman Nguroje, identified the suspects as Kabiru Muhammed, 42 years old; Ibrahim Audu, 17 years; Hassan Usman, 40 years, Musa Sani, 22 years; Bello Ibrahim, 35 years; Abdullahi Saidu, 17 years; and Muhammed Abdu, 40 years.
They are all residents of Tambo, Girei LGA.
“The suspects were trailed to their hideouts after the kidnap of one Koire Alhaji Ruwa of the same address and N10 million ransom demanded.
“Interestingly, when the coordinator of the organised crime was apprehended, he immediately confessed, thereby giving instructions to his collaborators to unconditionally release the kidnapped victim to prevent him from the consequences of the crime he committed. There and then, the victim was released unhurt,” the police explained.
