Sani Ibrahim, also known as Burtu was arrested on Wednesday by troops of One Division Nigerian Army, Kaduna State.

He was taking into custody during a clearance operation by the troops at  Rijana forest camp.

Burtu has been on the wanted list of the security agencies in the state for a long time.

The troops also recovered 1 motorcycle and 25 goats from the camp.

Several cases of attacks and kidnapping have been recorded along the Kaduna-Abuja highway.

Last month, a lawmaker representing Kano state at the House of Representatives, Garba Durbunde was abducted along that axis.
