Police Nab Notorious Kidnapper In Kaduna

Operatives of the Kaduna State Police Command have apprehended a notorious kidnapper, Yakubu Said, popularly known as Ismail, over allegations of banditry, culpable homicide and mischief.

A statement by the State’s Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mansir Hassan disclosed that Saidu, the alleged mastermind and leader of the notorious kidnapping gang, was apprehended at Zango urban on 22nd of March 2024.


Hassan noted that the suspect has also confessed to his involvement in the heinous crime.


Recall that on 7th September 2023, at approximately 2030hrs, the Officer in Charge of Fadan Kamanta, Zonkwa, alerted authorities of a distressing situation at St. Raphael Catholic Church, Kamantan, where suspected kidnappers had launched an attack.


The operatives, in collaboration with military personnel, swiftly mobilized to the scene but regrettably, the suspects had already set ablaze the priest’s residence before the arrival of the security personnel.


One seminarian, Stephen Naaman, tragically lost his life in the inferno and property worth millions of naira, including a Honda vehicle and a motorcycle, were consumed by the fire.


The Commissioner of Police in the state, CP Ali Audu Dabigi commended the operatives for the swift and effective response to the distress call and their dedication and bravery which are a testament to their commitment to protecting the lives and property of the citizens of the state.


The Command in the statement reassured the public of its unwavering resolve to combat crime and ensure the safety and security of all residents.
