The arrest of the kidnappers is sequel to the massive deployment of more police assets and patrol vehicles in the area in the last one week.

Announcing the arrests, Yakubu Yusuf, a retired colonel and Coordinator of Operation Yaki, said that the security operations against kidnapping are being funded by the Kaduna State Government. He disclosed that Governor Nasir El-Rufai has been encouraging and supporting interagency cooperation in the fight against crime.“Governor El-Rufai has pressed for a sustained onslaught against kidnapping.

The Kaduna State Government is assisting security agencies with operational funds to support these efforts.

The governor commends the communities that have been contributing to the security effort reporting suspicious activities.”

The suspects were arrested at various locations, including Maraban Jos, UngwanPama, Sabon Gayan and Rijana villages respectively, all in Kaduna State.

All the suspects arrested confessed to several kidnappings of motorists along Kaduna – Abuja highway and further confessed that because of the massive deployment of security forces to their area of operations, most of their gang members have started relocating from Rijana village to their respective home towns.

Meanwhile, the suspects and the items recovered from them have been handed over to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the State Police Command for further investigation.
