...IGP Orders Massive Manhunt for Fleeing Suspects

 IRT Operatives have arrested a deadly criminal gang responsible for the kidnap and murder of a Catholic Seminarian, Nnadi Michael of the Catholic Good Shepherd Major Seminary at Gonin Gora, Kakau in Chikun LGA of Kaduna State.

According to the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), DCP Frank Mba in a press statement revealed that the syndicate was responsible for the kidnap and murder of Dr. PHILIP Ataga’s wife, six students and two teachers of Engravers College, both incidents in Kaduna State.

It would be recalled that, on January 9, 2020, the criminal gang stormed the Catholic Seminary and kidnapped four seminarians, murdered one of them in cold-blood and released the remaining three on 31st January, 2020, having obtained a ransom. The remains of the fourth Seminarian were found in a bush where abandoned.

The FPRO, Frank Mba added that "The suspects: Tukur Usman ‘m’ aged 37, father of 7, Shehu Bello ‘m’ aged 40, father of 5 and Mustapha Mohammed ‘m’ aged 30, father of 1, all of Igabi LGA of Kaduna State, were arrested after several months of intensive and extensive intelligence-led operations by crack detectives of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT)".

Mba disclosed that, discreet investigations so far revealed that the arrested suspects were part of a 19-man gang that also carried out the kidnap of Dr. Phillip Ataga’s wife and two daughters on January 24, 2020 at Juji Community in Chikun LGA of Kaduna State.

"Mrs Ataga was killed by the gang following her heroic resistance to the despicable and inhuman attempt by the leader of the gang to rape her.

"The suspects, after killing her, released the daughters and corpse of the slain woman to the family after collecting ransom. Further investigations revealed that the same criminal gang was responsible for the kidnap of six students and two teachers of Engravers College, Chikun LGA, Kaduna, from their school premises on October 3, 2019.
The suspects, known to belong to a hybrid terrorist criminal network causing untold havoc in North-Central, Nigeria, have confessed to several other random operations along Abuja-Kaduna Expressway where they kidnapped, killed and robbed motorists, collecting ransom and valuables running into millions of naira", Mba stated.

He said that, the Inspector-General of Police, IGP M.A Adamu, while reiterating that the Force would remain unrelenting in ensuring that crimes across the country were reduced to the barest minimum, assured the nation that the Force would not rest until the other members of the gang also responsible for the above crimes, but currently on the run, were apprehended and brought to book.
