“The Command’s operatives attached to State Intelligence Bureau in sustained effort foiled an organised crime to kidnap one Emmanuel Ebel a resident of Jambutu, Yola North Local Government Area.
“The Command upon receiving the information designed a security ring around the target and luckily engaged the suspected kidnappers,” the statement said.
The suspects, according to the statement, are; Chubrandom Safinga, 30; Ibrahim Tala, 32; Ngosso Ndjombe, 28; Mmai Rostand, 32; and Nossu Ngambewo Ricky 27.

“The Commissioner of Police, CP Sikiru Akande, while commending OC SIB and his men for gallantry performance and professional conduct displayed leading to their arrest, also directs them to sustain the tempo as a strategy for crime prevention.”
The statement said the police commissioner urged residents to always inform the police of the whereabouts of criminals and their accomplices.
