The Kano State Police Command said it has rescued a four-year-old boy, Abdurrahman Dalha of Zangon Rimi Quarters, Ungogo Local Government Area, Kano State, from kidnappers who demanded a ransom of four million Naira (N4, 000.000.00).
The command’s anti-kidnapping team of Operation Puff-Adder was immediately mobilised when it received a complaint that unknown people had kidnapped a four-year-old in the area.
The command directed the anti kidnapper operatives to track down the kidnappers and which led to their arrest within 24 hours.
This was contained in a media statement by the command spokesman, DSP Abdullahi Haruna and made available to journalists in Kano.
The statement explained that police operatives swung into action where community-policing tools were utilised and that led to the arrest of the principal suspect, one Anas Isah, 22-year-old of Zangon Dakata Quarters Kano, while planning to collect the ransom.
It further revealed that the suspect confessed to the commission of the crime and led Puff-Adder Operatives to the house of his aunty at Inusawa Village, Ungogo LGA where the kidnapped victim was rescued.
The Command therefore called on the good citizens of the State to continue cooperating with the Police for the timely and prompt rendition of information and intelligence on any form of crime and criminality across the length and breadth of the State for the quick and timely response.
