An investigation by Daily Trust indicated that the suspect who is alleged to be a member of a dangerous kidnapping and armed robbery syndicate was arrested by the operatives of the Nigeria Police Force attached to the Wamba Division.

Confirming the incident to our correspondent in Lafia, the Police Public Relations Officer of the Nasarawa state command, ASP Ramhan Nansel said, “The Police received information that a suspected member of a kidnapping and armed robbery syndicate which operates between Akwanga and Wamba LGA of Nasarawa State was sighted at Wamba metropolis.

“Upon receipt of the information, police operatives attached to Wamba Division swiftly swung into action and got the suspect, a 45 years old Mohammed Igbira arrested.

He continued, “Further investigation revealed that the suspect is a kidnapper that was arrested and sent to prison in Jos, Plateau state but he escaped from lawful custody when the Correctional facility was attacked on 30th November 2021.
