The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command has arrested five notorious kidnappers and recovered four AK-47 rifles, a Dane gun, and eight unexpended live ammunition in a two-day operation between June 30 and July 3, 2024.

According to a statement signed by SP Josephine Adeh, Public Relations Officer, FCT Police Command, the operation was prompted by intelligence following a kidnapping incident in Gwagwa last month, where a victim was kidnapped, and a ransom of N12 million was paid to the kidnappers. Unfortunately, two others were killed during the incident.

The suspects, Umar Abdullahi (a.k.a. Auta), 20, Likita Abubakar, 29, Salisu Sani, 24, Sabiu Mohammed, and Aliyu Suleiman, 24, were arrested in connection with the kidnapping incident and have confessed to the crime.

The recent arrest is a significant milestone in the command’s efforts to tackle kidnapping and other heinous crimes in the FCT. The police had earlier recorded a similar success in June 2024, when they arrested a notorious kidnapper and recovered a ransom of N5 million.

The FCT Police Command has also assured residents that the investigation is still ongoing and that more arrests are expected. The command has also urged residents to report any suspicious activities through the following emergency lines: 08032003913, 08028940883, 08061581938, and 07057337653.
