A statement signed by its spokesman, Tony Opuiyo, in Abuja, yesterday, said among the successes it recorded was the July 3 arrest†of seven members of a kidnap gang at Kakuri Industrial Area in Kaduna State.
Those arrested during the operation were Haliru Hassan and six other members of a notorious kidnap gang operating along the Abuja-Kaduna Highway, adding that the gang, which comprised Usman Abdulkadir, Yusuf Saidu, Abubakar Shuiabu, Abubakar Suleman, Uzairu Bawa and Sani Abubakar have been terrorising motorists and commuters within the Rijana and Katari axis of the highway.

This is in consolidation of efforts to degrade, contain and deter the activities of terrorists/insurgents, kidnappers and other criminal elements.
