Troops Nab Six Suspected Kidnappers, Reject N2m Bribe In Taraba

The 6 Brigade of the Nigerian Army on Monday confirmed its troops arrested six alleged kidnappers in Taraba State.

Acting Assistant Director of 6 Brigade Army Public Relations, Lieutenant Oni Olubodunde disclosed that the individuals were apprehended during different state-wide operations.

According to him, soldiers from the Forward Operating Base Wukari-based 93 Battalion Sub-Sector 3B OPWS conducted a meticulously organised operation in Wukari Local Government Council’s Chinkai village in response to a tip.

He claimed that two people, Usman Gide Ali, 25, and Abdulrahman Amadu, 28, were apprehended as a result of the raid.


He said that the suspects had been listed as wanted by security services due to their involvement in several kidnappings that had taken place in Wukari and the adjacent areas.

The accused allegedly tried to bribe the soldiers with two million Naira in exchange for their freedom after they were apprehended.

“The suspects were also overheard stating that if money failed to secure their freedom, their associates would resort to armed means to rescue them from custody,” he said.
