The Kaduna state government says troops of the Nigerian Navy arrested three kidnappers in Kujama, Chikun local government area on Friday.
The state’s Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, said a military report revealed that the bandits, in a black Toyota Corolla, drove up to the shop of a POS agent in the area and attempted to kidnap the operator and a customer who was there for a transaction.
“Alarm was raised and the Nigerian Navy troops from the Kujama checkpoint arrived at the scene to apprehend the suspects before they could escape with their captives,” he said.
Aruwan said the suspected bandits identified as Kabiru Yusuf, Salihu Ibrahim and Naziru Haruna, have been handed over to the police for further investigation and prosecution.
“The rescued victims, Franklin Silas (the POS operator) and Blessing Fada, both residents of Kujama, are both safe and assisting security agencies with the investigations, “he said.
