Police Re-arrest Suspected Kidnap Kingpin Wadume


Emerging reports indicate that the alleged Taraba state kidnap kingpin, Hamisu Bala popularly known as Wadume, has been re-arrested and taken to the Force headquarters in Abuja.
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.
