Suspected kidnap kingpin, Wadume in Police net


Hamisu Bala, alias Wadume, suspected kidnap kingpin now in Police net.
There seems to be breakthrough in the search of alleged Taraba state kidnap kingpin, Hamisu Bala popularly known as Wadume, following his re-arrest on Tuesday by the Nigerian police.
Reports say he has been taken to the Police Headquarters in Abuja, popularly known as Louis Edet House.
Police authorities are yet to respond to inquiries on the matter but there are indications that police may issue official statement in the next few hours on the breakthrough.
Wadume’s escape after an attack on his police captors by soldiers and a village mob along Ibi-Wukari road in Taraba state on Aug. 6 sparked off massive public reactions and led to the constitution of a special investigative panel.
In a video recording after his re-arrest, Bala said: ““I am Hamisu Bala also known as Wadume. The police came to Ibi and arrested me. After arresting me, they were taking away when soldiers went after them and opened fire and some policemen were killed. From there the soldiers took me to their headquarters and cut off the handcuffs on my hands and I ran away.”
The investigation panel, which is working with presidential authority, was initially scheduled to conclude its findings last week but was given two additional weeks. (NAN)
