Vigilantes arrest 2 kidnappers in Zaria

Two suspected kidnappers have been arrested by vigilantes at the Low-Cost area of Zaria in Kaduna State, Daily Trust reports.

The incident occurred around 10 pm on Sunday when an unspecified number of kidnappers stormed the low-cost in an attempt to kidnap the residents but were confronted by the local vigilantes.

A resident, who did not want to be named, said the kidnappers were shooting sporadically to scare the people but the vigilantes engaged them in a gun duel before the arrival of the police.

Daily Trust however gathered that four residents were abducted by the other members of the kidnap gang while some youths sustained injuries in the encounter that lasted for about two hours.

Kaduna State Police Command spokesman ASP Mohammed Jalige said the two arrested suspects were undergoing interrogation while their fleeing accomplices were being trailed by the police.
