The suspects: Usman Gide Ali, 25 and Abdulrahaman Amadu, 28 met their waterloo following a raid by the troops of 93 Battalion Sub-Sector 3B OPWS, stationed at Forward Operating Base Wukari, in Taraba State.

The troops, acting on a tip-off raided the Chinkai Village of Wukari Local Government Area of the state where the duo were apprehended.

“Upon their arrest, the suspects attempted to bribe the troops with 2 million Naira for their release.

“However, the soldiers staunchly refused the bribe, underscoring their dedication to justice and integrity.

“The suspects were also overheard stating that if money failed to secure their freedom, their associates would resort to armed means to rescue them from custody,” the Army said.

In a similar development, troops stationed at Sarikin Kudu of the state arrested four more suspected kidnappers.
