The Department of the State Security Service in Kano State has arrested one of the dreaded kidnapping kingpins, who allegedly organized the recent attack on Nassarawa State Deputy Governor, Emmanuel Akabe where three Policemen and a civilian were killed.
The suspect, Muhammad Sani Akazakwai, was apprehended at his mother’s residence in Kano during the week while treating the wounds he apparently sustained during a gun duel with the police.
The security source told Dailypost that Sani Akazakwai after attacking the Deputy Governor of Nassarwa State escaped to Kano to treat his wounds.
While interrogating him, they recovered 50 Ak47 rifles, which he claimed were inherited from his father.
The kingpin further told the DSS that two other of his henchmen were still in the bush with seven AK47 rifles that they snatched from the dead police officers.
