The command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Aliyu Usman, made the disclosure while parading suspected traffickers, kidnappers and armed robbers before newsmen on Monday in Kaduna.

Usman said the suspected traffickers, one Abukara Adamu (44) and his wife Fatima (38), abducted Mahmud on Jan. 19, while Umar was abducted on March 27.

He said the victims were rescued on Oct. 7 from the traffickers, who were found with two international passports and two birth certificates with the children’s details.

“This indicates likelihood of flying the victims to unknown foreign country,” he said.

The police also paraded three other suspected kidnappers who kidnapped Alhaji Audu Hairi at the Kaura Market, Giwa Local Government Area in July.

“The victim was taken to an unknown forest where he was brutally handled. All the suspects confessed to the allegation, “ he said.

The Police spokesman said three armed robbers were also arrested on Oct. 2, at Birnin Gawri following a tip off.

He said exhibits recovered from the suspects include N146,925 cash, three cutlasses, six gallons of palm oil and 14 cell phones.

Usman said as soon as investigation was completed, all the suspects would be charged to court for prosecution.

He, however, appealed to members of the public to continue to cooperate with the police by giving them useful information on activities of criminals in the state for prompt action.
