Police Nab Five Cameroonians While Attempting To Kidnap Nigerian In Adamawa

Meanwhile, a kidnapping attempt involving some Cameroonian citizens was foiled in Adamawa State during the weekend, Naija News reports.

It was gathered that the foreigners formed a gang of five and were about to kidnap a Nigerian citizen in the state before they were busted.

The kidnap attempt was reportedly foiled by operatives of the State Intelligence Bureau (SIB) of the Adamawa state police command, who responded to an intelligence report on the gang’s operation.

The suspects were nabbed in the Jambutu suburb of the state capital after perfecting plans to abduct one Emmanuel Ebel, a Nigerian.

Confirming the rescue operation, the spokesperson for the police in the state, SP Suleiman Nguroje, said, “The crime was busted following reliable information received from a good Samaritan, leading to the arrest of all illegal immigrants from the neighbouring Cameroon Republic, 20 minutes before implementing their organized crime.
