“Troops of OPSH, acting on credible intelligence, have neutralised a notorious gang of kidnap syndicate on the plateau.
“The syndicate has been on the watchlist of OPSH and believed to have masterminded the recent kidnapping incidences in the state, and participated in the recent jail break at the Jos custodial centre.
“The syndicate met its waterloo when our troops tracked the members to Gyreo general area, where they usually meet to plan how to carry out their nefarious activities.
“The kidnappers, on sighting the troops, opened fire; our troops responded with superior fire power resulting in the neutralisation of three members of the notorious gang,” Takwa explained.
The media officer said items recovered from the syndicate included; one AK-47 Rifle, two AK-47 rifle magazines, 101 live rounds of 7. 62mm ammunition and one tricycle.
