Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Shehu Umar,Gusau

The Zam­fara State Po­lice Com­mand has ar­rested four sus­pected kid­nap­pers in Moriki town, Zurmi Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area of the state.

The sus­pects, ac­cord­ing to the Po­lice Public Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer, DSP Sanusi Amiru, were in­ter­cepted fol­low­ing a tip-off.

He said the sus­pects were ar­rested while they were tak­ing their vic­tim, Haladu Kaikai, to an undis­closed lo­ca­tion in a Golf ve­hi­cle.

He said two pis­tols, one axe and a cut­lass were re­cov­ered from them.

One of the sus­pects, Ibrahim Ma’ aiki, who is a staff of the Pri­mary Health Care Depart­ment of the Maradun Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area told Daily Trust that they were com­mis­sioned by one Sar­dau­nan Kaya, Al­haji Ab­dul­lahi Maikano, to kid­nap the vic­tim and that they were on their way out of the town when they were ar­rested by the po­lice.

Speak­ing to Daily Trust, the vic­tim said the sus­pects tied up his legs, hands, blind­folded him, wrapped him in a cloth and bun­dled him into the boot of a car.

The Po­lice Public Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer said the sus­pects would be charged to court as soon as in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the mat­ter is com­pleted.

In a re­lated de­vel­op­ment, the com­mand said it smashed a no­to­ri­ous armed rob­bery gang along Sokoto Gusau road and that one of the sus­pected rob­bers was shot dead in a shoot-out with the po­lice.
