In Abuja: Two suspected kidnappers die of gunshot injuries

Two suspected kidnappers have died of gunshot injuries after a firefight with operatives of the FCT police command on Sunday.

The incident occurred at Naharati village along the Abaji axis.

The police spokesperson, Mariam Yusuf, said the deceased died while receiving treatment at the hospital.

She explained that the command has launched a manhunt for the other fleeing suspects.

Meanwhile, the command has arrested five suspects for cultism and ‘one chance’ robbery along Gwagwa and Lugbe axis.

They were nabbed by police operatives from Gwagwa Division during a routine patrol on Friday.

A statement by Yusuf said, “The suspects confessed to being members of Aro Baga confraternity terrorizing Gwagwa axis. Exhibits recovered are one locally-made revolver pistol and two unexpended catridges.”

It stated that the police also arrested a 24-year-old female, Blessing Nuhu and one Ifeoma Nnamuchi, the alleged leader of the four-man ‘one chance’ syndicate operating along Lugbe-Galadimawa axis.

The statement explained that two members of the gang, Charity Timothy 23 and Sunday Godwin, 23, had been arrested earlier on March 1.

“The suspects confessed to terrorizing residents along that axis. Exhibits recovered include a red Volkswagen car with registration number, BWR 903 HE, and one mobile phone.

“All the suspects will be arraigned in court upon conclusion of an investigation,” the command said. Punch
