Detectives Arrest Kidnappers' Clairvoyant Inside Kaduna Forest

           • Mallam Salish (Suspect

 • Godwin Ige (Suspect)

Detectives from the IGP Intelligence Response Unit (IRT) and other operatives attached to Operation Puff Adder have arrested one Mallam Salisu Abubakar, 48 - year old, a native of Dutsinma LGA, Katsina State who is believed to serve as 'seer' and 'clairvoyant' for kidnappers. 

The Mallam, a self-confessed spiritual father of kidnappers terrorizing Abuja-Kaduna expressway and parts of other North-West/North-Central States of the Country, was arrested on 16th April, 2019, following painstaking intelligence and subsequent manhunt, in his hideout, in a forest, at Galadimawa Village, Kaduna State.

Investigation has clearly implicated the suspect for aiding and abetting the commission of several high-profile armed robbery and kidnapping operations in the North West and North Central States of the Country. 

The suspect is notorious for providing spiritual guidance and intelligence for kidnappers, before and after their operations. 

His arrest, no doubt, will assist Police operatives to apprehend several other kidnappers and vicious criminals still at large, says Frank Mba, a Deputy Commissioner of Police(DCP), Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, in a release.

Similarly, the operatives on 14th April, 2019, in Abuja, arrested one Godwin Ige alias  ‘white’  28 - year old, a native of Akoko-Edo LGA of Edo State, the fourth member of the gang responsible for the kidnap of Channels TV Staff, Mr. Friday Okeregbe. 

The operatives recovered from him One (1) Berretta Pistol, One (1) Locally Made Pistol, Eleven (11) Live Ammunition, Two (2) live Cartridges and One Honda Accord Car with Reg. No. KWL 420 GU with which the victim was kidnapped on 22nd March, 2019.  

The IGP while appealing for public support, patience and understanding assures that the Police and other security agencies will not rest on their oars until our homes and highways are made safe and secured, Mba added.
