The Police have re-arrested suspected kidnap kingpin, Hamisu Wadume who was the reason for the clash between the police and soldiers two weeks ago in Taraba State.
Mr Wadume was arrested in the Hotoro area of Kano State by Inspector General of Police’s Intelligence Response Team. He is presently being held at the Force Headquarters in Abuja.
Recall that Wadume was the suspect three police officers had gone to arrest in Taraba two weeks ago before they of were brutally murdered by soldiers. The occurence led to a major stand-off between the Nigerian Police and the Nigerian Army, with the police insisting that the soldiers were working for Wadume because after the shooting, Wadume who was reportedly in handcuffs, was allegedly allowed to escape.
The Nigerian Army in its respeonse said its men thought the policemen were kidnappers as they had reportedly received a distress call.
