Police Arrest Suspected Kidnap Boss

The Intelligence Response Team (IRT) of the Nigerian Police Force has effected the arrest of a notorious kidnap kingpin, Audu aka Commander Yellow.

The kidnap kingpin and his gang are said to have been terrorizing Abuja-Kaduna-Kano Expressway and responsible for many kidnappings on the expressway.

Naija News gathered the 40-year-old ‘Yellow’ has been on the police watch list for armed robbery, murder, rape, and kidnapping for a long period of time until he was nabbed by IRT operatives, led by DCP Abba Kyari.

The arrested suspect is said to have confessed that he successfully carried out over 50 kidnappings and that his gang had killed many innocent Nigerians during the operations.

A senior police officer who is quoted on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to speak to the press on the matter said: “Yellow was leading a formidable gang that has killed many people. The gang has no mercy as it killed anyone who failed to pay ransom at the exact time it requested for it.

The members would abuse their female victims. The worst of it all was that they would kill a victim and still collect ransom. We thank God that he and many of his key gang members have been apprehended by IRT. “
