In Abuja’s Bwari Area Council, troops raided a suspected kidnappers’ hideout in Ajegunle Mpape.

Notorious informant Ashiru Mohammed, along with Raham Abubakar and Sadiya Mohammed, were apprehended. The suspects were found with a Beretta pistol, ammunition, ATM cards, mobile phones, and illicit drugs.

In Oyo State, troops intercepted suspected kidnapper Usman Mohammed Aliyu along the Igboho-Igbeti Road.
