The police have arrested a suspected kidnapper, Abubakar Burumburum, 27, who was found in possession of two AK-47 rifles by operatives of the Operation Puff Adder in Kano.
The Public Relations Officer of the state police command, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, confirmed the arrest of the suspect to journalists in Kano on Sunday.
He explained that the suspect, who was apprehended following a tip-off, was currently undergoing interrogation.
Haruna stated that the suspect, popularly known as Likita in the Birnin Gwari area, mostly carried out his activities in Kaduna, Kano and other parts of the northern states.
