Operatives of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command have burst a notorious kidnapping gang that has been involved in series of kidnapping recently.

They were arrested along Tungan-Maje, Bwari and Kwali –Kuje axis.

The Command disclosed this in a statement signed by its Spokesperson, Mariam Yusuf, in Abuja, Sunday.

The suspects, the statement said, belong to a notorious syndicate of kidnappers who were involved in the recent abductions along Bwari-Byzahin, Kuje-Kwali axis and Niger State.

The suspects include Usman Musa, 20 years; Bello Musa, 21; and Haruna Alhassan, 22 years.

Exhibits recovered included N1,275,000 which was paid to them as ransom by their victims, 3 mobile phones, charms, 3 wrist watches and two caps.

In a related development, 25-year-old Lawal Abdullahi and Abdul Alhassan, 19 years, have been arrested for being linked to the kidnappings along Tunga-maje axis.

The duo, the statement said, have since confessed to have threatened some residents of Tunga-Maje to pay ‘ransom’ to avoid being kidnapped.

All the suspects will be arraigned in court upon conclusion of investigation.

The Command, therefore, called on residents of the capital city to report all suspicious movements, emergency or distress, through the 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653.
