BREAKING: Suspected Taraba kidnapper Wadume Arrested
Hamisu Wadume, the suspected kidnap kingpin in Taraba State, has been re-arrested, credible sources are telling ElombahNews.
“Wadume the alleged kidnapper that was said to purportedly escaped has been arrested . I met him today at about 1:30pm, at the Force Headquarters in Abuja”, the source informed ElombahNews on Tuesday.
He failed however to confirm when and where Mr Wadume was taken into custody.
The police are expected to release a statement on his arrest later.
Mr Wadume was the ‘high profile’ kidnapping suspect arrested by the police on August 6. He was being driven to Jalingo by the police team when soldiers opened fire on them along Ibi-Wukari Road, killing three police officers and a civilian.
The attack immediately sparked friction between police and the Nigerian Army, as well as a nationwide apprehension, prompting President Muhammadu Buhari to order an investigation.
The investigation panel, which includes persons with police and military background, was initially scheduled to conclude its findings last week, but the team sought additional two weeks to wrap up.
