In a concerted effort to combat criminal activities within the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), police operatives from the FCT Police Command's Anti-Kidnapping Unit carried out a successful operation on 02/02/2024. Acting on credible intelligence, they apprehended several individuals suspected of involvement in kidnapping.

Among those arrested are Buhari Muhammad, aged 20, identified as a wanted kidnap kingpin, along with accomplices Muhammad Sabiu (20), Isah Abdullahi, Hamzat Musa (21), Fatima Abdullahi (22), and Zuliat Yusuf (23). The arrests were made at a hotel in Bassa Village, FCT.
