The Police Command in Sokoto State says it has arrested no fewer than nine persons, including seven alleged kidnappers and one rapist.
Kaoje said that one of the suspects, Isiya Zubairu, 20, of Illela Local Government Area, was arrested for allegedly having forceful sexual intercourse with a six-year-old girl in their family house.
He also said that two of the suspected kidnapers were arrested after abducting a father and his daughter at Rakaka Magaji village in Rabah Local Government Area of the state.
“On receipt of the information, men on Operation Puff Adder in conjunction with local vigilantes, trailed the hoodlums, arrested six of them and recovered one motorcycle,” the commissioner said.
He added that another suspected kidnapper, Maude Salihu from Yankara village in Katsina State, was arrested in Binji Local Government Area of Sokoto.
According to him, Salihu, who was arrested with a sum of N417, 030, two mobile phones, four sim cards and assorted charms, confessed to being a member of a gang operating in Katsina, Zamfara and Sokoto axis.
Kaoje said that the suspect admitted that the money was his share of ransom paid after a successful operation.
He disclosed that the police also arrested an armed robbery suspect, Bashiru Abdullahi, one year after his gang attacked and robbed residents of Dankade village in Rabah Local Government Area.
The commissioner, therefore, appealed to parents to monitor their children’s movement and their associates as cases of rape were at an alarming rate in the state.

3 brothers in Police net over alleged murder of woman in Abuja
Three brothers have been arrested in connection with the murder of a woman in Abuja,
according to Mr Frank Mba, Public Relations of the Police Force.
Mba, in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, said that the suspects, from Isiekenesi, Ideato Local Government in Imo, are helping Police investigation into the May 14 murder of Mrs Janet Ogbonnaya, a mother of five children.
He said that the suspects were arrested by the Police in their home town where they had allegedly taken refuge after committing the crime in Abuja, to evade arrest.
Mba said that investigation that led to their arrest followed complaints by one Chinedu Ogbonnaya, who alleged that his mother, Janet, 55, a native of Ozuitem in Bende Local Government Area of Abia, had been kidnapped.
Ogbonnaya told the Police that N5 million ransom was being demanded by the kidnappers to secure the mother’s release.
“A comprehensive and painstaking investigation by Police operatives resulted in the arrest of the three suspects, who, in the course of interrogation, revealed that the victim had long been murdered and buried.
“The suspect took advantage of the visit, served her milk laced with drugs, and subsequently murdered her,” he said.
According to him, the victim was buried in a septic tank afterwhich the suspects went ahead to reach out to the family, using her phone, to demand N5 million ransom to secure her release.
Mba said that the suspects, on Thursday, led a team of investigators alongside pathologists to a residence at Wumba District, Lokogoma area of Abuja, where the victim’s decomposing body was exhumed from a septic tank.
The spokesman said that the exhumed body had been taken to the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital for forensic examination, while a Toyota Highlander Jeep belonging to the deceased had also been recovered at a mechanic workshop in Apo, where it had been repainted into a different colour.
Mba said that the vehicle documents had been fraudulently changed with ownership of the stolen vehicle criminally transferred to one of the masterminds of the crime.
According to him, investigation also revealed that the house where the deceased was killed and buried originally belonged to one of the suspects but was hurriedly sold to a third party to obliterate evidence.
“Already, the Inspector General of Police, Mr Mohammed Adamu, has commended the team of Police operatives for a job well done. He has also pledged that perpetrators of crimes will not go undetected and unpunished.

“The robbers came in two vehicles – a bus and a car – with which they also escaped from the town.
Mr William Aya, spokesman of the Police Command in Kogi, confirmed the robbery incident and the invasion of the Police Station, but added that the casualty figure was “still hazy”.

Police Command rescues kidnapped mother of Yenagoa LGA Chairman, SPDC workers
The Police Command in Bayelsa has rescued the kidnapped 80-year-old, Mrs Beauty Nimizuoa, mother of the Chairman of Yenagoa Local Government Area of the state.
The police also rescued along with her some workers of Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) kidnapped early two months ago.
The State Commissioner of Police, Mr Nkereuwem Akpan, told journalists in Yenagoa on Thursday that the rescuing of kidnapped victims was made possible by the cooperation and support of law abiding people of the state.
“It is instructive to state that the command has rescued kidnapped victims, worthy of note is the rescue of Shell Petroleum Development Company’s workers and the 80– year-old Mother of the Chairman of Yenagoa local government council, Madam Beauty Nimizuoa.
“I am hopeful that with this level of commitment and engagements from the people of Bayelsa, we will together drive community policing initiative forward and make our communities safer again,” he said.
A family source, who spoke in anonymity, told reporters that the victim is hale and hearty, but the family is trying to keep the incident calm.
“After the kidnapping of our mother, the entire family was in a state of dilemma. I remember that each time it rains, the chairman would start crying, but we thank God her kidnappers have released her.
“And each time it was raining then, he would be saying ‘how is my mother faring with the rain?’
“Whenever the temperature was hot, he would be crying and be worried about how his old mother was faring with the kidnappers.
“So today, we are happy that she is free and healthy. The Nigeria Police must be commended because they did a good job,” he said.

The father said that the hoodlums saw the deceased in the bathroom, raped and macheted her to death before her younger sister later saw her corpse in a pool of blood.

Unidentified gunmen abduct Chinese expatriates in Ebonyi -Police confirm
Mrs Loveth Odah, the Police Public Relations Officer, (PPRO) confirmed the abduction in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, on Thursday in Abakaliki.
She said that the victims were allegedly abducted on Wednesday, June 3 at the mining site.
She however, explained that the police were yet to establish the motive behind the abduction, adding that preliminary investigation had commenced.
She said: “We got the information yesterday, a detachment of our tactical team was despatched to the area with a view to unraveling the true situation and also to rescue the victims.
“The team is yet to return to furnish us with relevant information about the incident.
“But, I can confirm to you that we received a distress call from the area yesterday informing the police of an alleged abduction of two Chinese working in a mining site at Ihietutu in Ishiagu community.
“We are waiting for information from our men before we can make informed comments on the motive behind the alleged abduction.
“For now, we cannot say if the abduction was for ransom purposes or not because the abductors are yet to establish contacts with the company.”
She however, urged non Nigerian nationals working in any part of the state to ensure that they move about with armed security guards to prevent attacks and molestations from criminals and possible kidnapping or abduction.
Mr Henry Ahanaotu, the Chairman and Managing Director, Greenfield Metals, told NAN that the hoodlums abducted their victims at mining pit at ‘Ajirija’ mining site 300 meters from the company’s Life-Camp after shooting severally into the air to deter any resistance.
He said that a formal report on the incident had been lodged at the police command in the state, adding that the abductors were yet to establish contact with the company.
“The unidentified persons bearing sophisticated arms stormed our mining pit at Ajirija and shot severally before whisking their victims away.
“We are yet to establish the identity of the abductors or where they came from.
NAN recalls that kidnappers in March invaded the company’s Life-Camp at ‘Ugwuajirija’ and kidnapped two Chinese nationals, who later regained their freedom after an undisclosed amount of money was paid as ransom.
