Police in Borno paraded four kidnap suspects before newsmen in Maiduguri on Thursday.
Commissioner of Police, Abdu Umar said the suspects, Abdu Isa, Musa Haro, Wada Hassan and Saleh Bukar were arrested in a joint operation between the police and local hunters.
They were arrested at Galadima Forest in Hawul Local Government Area of the state, he said.
Umar also told newsmen that three members of an eight-man gang who kidnapped one Ardo Buba in Gur Village in Biu Local Government Area of the state had been arrested.
The gang took the victim, Buratai bush and demanded N7 million ransom, he said.
“Buba, whose legs had been chained and padlocked, escaped from the bush having noticed that the kidnappers had slept off.
“The victim identified one of the suspects, Alhaji Mohammed Bello after they had been arrested,’’ Umar said.
The police commissioner also paraded one Nsa Hensewa for abduction and trafficking of three children.
The police also arrested 15 suspects for vandalising conduit wires and other materials in buildings newly-constructed for internally-displaced persons.
The buildings were those constructed by the UNDP in Mafa and those built by the Federal Government in Auno, both in Borno.
