Police Arrest ABU Security Staff ‘working’ With Gunmen To Kidnap Lecturers

The Nigerian Police Force has nabbed suspected kidnappers who have been terrorizing Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria.

One of the workers of the institution working at the security department, Aliyu Abubakar, was also arrested by the Special Tactical Squad of Inspector-General of Police for ‘providing’ assistance to kidnappers who have on various occasions terrorized the institution.

The Public Relations Officer of Nigerian Police, CP Frank Mba, at the ongoing parade of no fewer than 25 suspects for various offenses told journalists that a suspect, Malam Jafaru, who ‘provides’ spiritual guidance to the kidnappers, was also arrested.

The arrest comes in the wake of a spate of kidnappings that have hit the university campus and its environs, with staff and students were taken for ransom.

In November, gunmen forcefully abducted a staff of Ahmadu Bello University and released his wife and daughter in a gunfight with police.

Kidnappers invaded the home of the staff on the university’s main campus in Zaria and took him, his wife, and daughter.

The campus security passed on a distress call to the police intelligence response team. The Police engaged the kidnappers in a gunfight. He was released later in December.

In December, nine students of Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria were Kidnapped along the Kaduna-Abuja expressway.

The incident involved 300 Level students of the Department of French on their way to Lagos for the language immersion program at the Nigeria French Language Village (NFLV) in Badagry which was earlier interrupted by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Their abductors demanded N270 million as ransom, according to Daily Trust newspapers.
