DSS Arrests Members of Another Notorious Kidnapping Gang


The department of state services says it is sustaining its tactical and counter-terrorism operations which have yielded major successes with the arrest of terrorists and other criminals across the country.

In a statement from the service said those arrested include the mastermind of the kidnap of three Australian staff of Lafarge Cement Company, for which his gang received ransom of one hundred and fifty million naira.

Similarly, members of a notorious kidnap gang operating around the Abuja-Kaduna axis were arrested at Lafia, Nasarawa state. The gang had earlier kidnapped five Igbo women and collected the sum of thirteen million naira as ransom. They were while planning a high profile kidnap in Abuja.

Another kidnapping gang which has been terrorizing the south-east zone was busted by the service at Aba in Abia state.

In response to the regrouping of boko haram elements in Kano state, the service in collaboration with the military carried out coordinated operations, which led to the apprehension of two high profile members of the sect; Ibrahim Ustaz Abubakar and Idris Audu (aka AYA).

Audu is an IED specialist who was being groomed to penetrate security agencies in the country and had already perfected plans to join the army in the next recruitment, before his arrest.
