Five suspected kidnappers in Abuja have been arrested by the Federal Capital Territory Police Command.

The men were linked with recent kidnappings at Kiyi Village.

They were nabbed between Friday 26 March and Sunday 28 March in a coordinated operation by operatives from Dawaki Division and the Command’s Anti-Kidnapping Squad.

The arrested suspects are Abdullahi Haruna, Haruna Musa, Iliyasu Adamu, Micheal Paul and Salisu Abdullahi.
