Kaduna Police Kill Notorious Kidnap Kingpin
The police in Kaduna have announced the arrest of notorious kidnappers and the killing of their leader.

Combined teams of IRT personnel and vigilantes stormed the kidnappers camp deep inside Rijianna Forest.
On sighting the operatives, the deadly kidnappers opened fire. However, the officers counter-attack proved productive.
They also arrested 34-year-old Abdulahi Usman from Rijana village Kaduna state and 25-year-old Zaiyanu Bello from Kauru Kastina.
They recovered an AK47 rifle while other gang members escaped.
Suspects arrested confessed to several kidnappings within Abuja-Kaduna Highway and mentioned other gang members at large.
The police say serious efforts are in progress to bring the remaining gang members at large to justice.
