Police kill mastermind of UBEC chairman’s kidnap in gun duel

 Operatives of the Nigerian Police under the operation  Puff Adder, have killed the mastermind of the kidnap of the chairman of the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) Muhammed Mahmood and his daughter along the Abuja-Kaduna road.

 The Force spokesman, Mr. Frank Mba, who discloaed this in a statement on Sunday, said the suspect, a kidnapping kingpin and notorious armed robber, on Sumaila Sule, alias SHAHO a native of Rijana village in Kachia LGA of Kaduna state died from mortal wound he received while confronting the police operatives.

 “Sule is one of the most vicious and most wanted kidnappers that has been terrorizing citizens in Kaduna and its environs. He died in the early hours of 18th May, 2019 following multiple bullet wounds he sustained during a deadly shootout with police operatives attached to Operation Puff Adder,” Mba stated.

 According to Mba, “the shootout took place in the evening of 17th May 2019, at the outskirts of Rijana village. The police operatives, in line with the mandate of Operation Puff Adder, were carrying out routine surveillance and raid of suspected criminal hide-outs, when they suddenly came under gun fire attack from a heavily armed criminal gang.

 “The police team fought back gallantly, repelling the attack and eventually bringing SHAHO down, whilst his gang members fled. SHAHO was rushed to hospital, where he eventually died the next day”.

 The police also revealed that acting on information from the suspect before his death, police operatives, between the 18th and 19th of May 2019, carried out sweeping follow-up operations at different target locations. These coordinated operations led to the arrest of four other members of SHAHO’s gang and the recovery of three AK 47 rifles.

 “ The arrested gang members include:  Musa Hassan 26yrs,  Yau Umar 25yrs, Umar MUSA 22yrs and Muhammad Sani 28yrs , all males and natives of Rijiana Village Kachia LGA Kaduna State. SHAHO and his gang members have been on the radar of the intelligence community for a while, as they have been implicated in several high level kidnappings and other heinous crimes along Kaduna-Abuja road and beyond,” Mba said.

 The police spokesman also revealed that in a similar development, a combined team of Operation Puff Adder operatives, comprising of the IGP Response Team, the Technical Intelligence Unit, the Police Mobile Force and the Special Anti Robbery Squad arrested another set of kidnappers terrorizing citizens at Mubi axis of Adamawa state. He said one AK 47 rifle and 26 rounds of live ammunition were recovered from the gang.

 The arrested suspects include: Umaru Ibrahim  native of Yadi Buni, Yobe State ; Abdul Maina native of Maiha Adamawa State and Mohammed Abubakar native of Buni Yadi Yobe State.

 “The suspects have all confessed to participating in numerous kidnapping and armed robbery operations within Adamawa State, including the kidnap and collection of a ransom of N7 million from one Mallam Abdulahi Umoru of Hong L.G.A.

 “Investigations into these cases are on-going, while efforts aimed at arresting other members of the gangs still at large are being intensified,” he stated.

 Mba said the Inspector General of Police IGP Muhammed Adamu while commending the operatives for their gallantry, as well as selfless service to the nation and humanity, reassured Nigerians that the war against crimes and criminality will soon be won.
