A day after an alleged notorious kidnapper was arrested in Jigawa State, a similar arrest has been announced in neighbouring Zamfara State.
Both states are in the North-west of Nigeria.
The Police in Zamfara said they have arrested a suspected kidnapper and cattle rustler, Musa Abdullahi a.k.a Gaugai.
The Zamfara Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Shehu, disclosed this in a statement issued to journalists in Gusau on Wednesday.
He said the arrest was part of the command’s sustained efforts to rid the state of banditry, kidnapping, cattle rustling and other criminal activities.
“The suspect was arrested on January 1 by the anti-kidnapping squad of the command on Operation Sharar Daji around Kunkeli and Chabi villages in Maru Local Government Area of the state.
“One Ak47 Riffle with five rounds of live ammunition were recovered from the suspect,” he said
