Operatives of Operation Puff Adder in Kano have apprehended a suspected kidnapper, Abubakar Burumburum after two AK-47 rifles were found in his possession.
The Public Relations Officer of the state police command, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, confirmed the arrest of the suspect to journalists in Kano on Sunday.
He explained that the suspect, who was apprehended following a tip-off, was currently undergoing interrogation.
Haruna stated that the suspect, popularly known as Likita in the Birnin Gwari area, mostly carried out his activities in Kaduna, Kano and other parts of the northern states.
While answering questions, Burumburum, a father of six from the Tudun Wada Local Government Area of Kano State, confessed to being a cattle rustler, who engaged in kidnapping twice.
According to him, the two AK-47 rifles and ammunition were obtained from the children of one late Muhammadu Bakanoma in Zamfara State.
Haruna said Burumburum would soon be charged after the completion of investigation.
