A Captain of the Nigerian army who allegedly ordered soldiers on security check-point along the Ibi-Jalingo Expressway in Taraba State, to attack and kill policemen conveying suspected kidnap kingpin has been identified.

Following police investigation, it was found out that the said captain had several telephone conversations with the kidnap kingpin, Wadume and the Captain, were about 191 within the space of one month between July 9, 2019 and August 6, 2019.

According to Vanguard, the Army Captain is currently undergoing interrogation at the Defence Headquarters Abuja, and was arrested alongside five other Army personnel, who allegedly took part in the killing of the three policemen and their two civilian agents in the operation to arrest  Hamisu Balla, alias Wudume, in Ibi area of Taraba State.

It was also revealed that the arrested solders confessed that they received orders to attack the policemen from the captain, whom they said informed them that Wadume had been kidnapped and was being transported in a silver-coloured Toyota Hiace Bus.

A source at the Defence Headquarters, Abuja, claimed that they acted squarely on the orders of the captain, being their superior officer, but Police sources at Force Headquarters Abuja, disclosed that the police authorities have established strong links between the army captain and the notorious kidnapper, alleging that the army captain was on the kidnapper’s payroll, Vanguard reports.

The source added further that its investigations have also revealed that the army captain, who was not present in Ibi Town at the time the IRT operatives arrested Wadume, might have ordered his men to attack and kill the IRT operatives as well as rescue his friend, the kidnapper.
