By Ibrahim Kado
The Adamawa Police Command has arrested five Cameroonians suspected of involvement in the kidnapping of Emmanuel Ebel, a resident of Jambutu, Yola-North LGA.
SP Suleiman Nguroje, the command’s spokesman, disclosed in a press statement on Saturday in Yola.
He claimed that the crime was thwarted by reliable information provided by a good Samaritan, which resulted in the arrest of all illegal immigrants.
“The command operatives attached to the State Intelligence Bureau, in a sustained effort, foiled an organised crime plot to kidnap one Emmanuel Ebel, a resident of Jambutu, Yola North local government area.
“Upon receiving the information, the command designed a security ring around the target and luckily engaged the suspected kidnappers,” he stated.
Nguroje listed the suspects to include: Chubrandom Safinga, 30; Ibrahim Tala, 32; Ngosso Ndjombe, 28; Mmai Rostand, 32; and Nossu Ngambewo Ricky, 27.
“All illegal immigrants from the neighbouring Cameroon Republic were arrested 20 minutes before implementing their organised crime.”
“CP Sikiru Akande, the police commissioner, while commending OC SIB and his men for the gallantry and professional conduct displayed leading to their arrest, also directs them to sustain the tempo as a strategy for crime prevention,” he said.
According to Nguroje, the commissioner urged residents to always report the whereabouts of criminals and their accomplices to police.
He also assured the government and people of Adamawa State that the police would continue to protect citizens’ lives and property.
