Operatives of the State Intelligence Bureau in Kaduna State have arrested three suspects in connection with the kidnap of the wife of a lecturer of the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Kaduna State.

Spokesperson for the Kaduna State Police Command, Mr. Aliyu Usman, an assistant superintendent of police, identified the suspects as Mohammed Tukur, Suleima Auta and Shuaibu Rabiu, all of whom were living behind the ABU campus.

Usman told Saturday PUNCH that Inusa was kidnapped on September 19, 2016 at her residence in Zaria.

He explained that the police launched a manhunt for the suspects after the case was reported and that they were tracked down a week after at different hideouts in the state.

But Usman, who indicated that Inusa had been released too, did not give details of the circumstances surrounding her release by the suspects.

“The suspects have confessed to the crime and investigation is still ongoing to arrest their accomplices,” he said.

Meanwhile, the police in the state also arrested the suspected killers of an operative of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Timothy Ayuba.

The suspects – Mustapha Idris, Shamsudeen Ahmadu and Ali Ayuba –allegedly shot Ayuba on September 8, when their gang attacked him on his way to Sabon Gayan in Chukun Local Government area of the state.

He was also robbed of his motorcycle, which the police have now recovered.

Usman told Saturday PUNCH that the police also recovered two other Bajaj motorcycles they snatched from two other victims, one of whom they identified as Idris Bello.

“Investigation is in progress to track down the rest of the gang,” Usman said.

In another case, the police arrested two suspects – Favour Friday and Sunday Joseph – at the Federal Prison in Kaduna.

When they were searched, three live rounds of ammunition were allegedly found on them, it was learnt.

The police believe they were in the process of gaining access to the prison yard to give the ammunition to an inmate namted Zachariah Tanimu, AKA Kolo, an awaiting trial inmate who was being prosecuted for criminal conspiracy, armed robbery and illegal possession of firearms.

Usman said Joseph and Friday had been charged to court.
