The house where the notorious Taraba kidnapper, Hamisu Bala Wadume, was hiding before his re-arrest, has been revealed.
The kidnap kingpin who has already been paraded by the police, explained the role of soldiers when he was first arrested.
He escaped when soldiers at a military check point in Taraba State rained bullets on the police vehicle taking him away after his arrest.
Three policemen and a civilian were killed in the attack. Wadume escaped and the police launched a manhunt for him before his arrest on Monday.
The Wadume saga led to a breakdown in the police-army relationship and a plethora of probes by the police, the Defence headquarters and the army.
Confirming Wadume’s arrest on Monday in his hideout at Layin Mai Allo Hotoro area of Kano State, Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba, said that his capture would shed light to everything hidden about his escape and the killing of the policemen by soldiers.
“The Inspector General of Police, IGP M.A Adamu, believes that the re-arrest of the suspect, Alhaji Hamisu Bala Wadume, will no doubt help in bringing answers to the numerous but hitherto unanswered questions touching on the incident and the larger criminal enterprise of the suspect.”
