The Nigeria Police Force report that they have rearrested a notorious kidnapper who was weeks back forcibly released by soldiers from detention. 
Alhaji Hamisu Bala Wadume, was arrested on yesterday (August 19) by police operatives at his hideout in the north central Nigerian State of Kano.
It would be recalled that the Police had been on the massive manhunt for the suspect since 6th August, 2019 following the unfortunate incident in Taraba State that resulted in the murder of three police officers and two civilians by members of the Nigerian Army, in a bizarre mission by the former to help Alhaji Wadume escape justice. Five others civilians were also seriously wounded by the rogue military officers involved in the bloody incident.
In a shocking video confession in the Nigerian native Hausa language, the suspect is heard saying: “I am Hamisu Bala alias Wadume. Police operatives came and arrested me, after my arrest, soldiers pursued them and opened fire till some policemen lost their lives. They took me to their army headquarters, cut off my handcuffs and allowed me to escape, since my escape; I have been in hiding till the police rearrested me.”
The police had in early August made public demand for the army to come clean on the whereabouts of the kidnapper and also demanded justice for their slain officers.
After a meeting with security service chiefs, President Muhammadu Buhari ordered an investigation into the circumstances that led to the deadly clashes. The committee has yet to present the results of its findings.
