The police in Jigawa State have arrested two suspects allegedly involved in the killing of an immigration officer in Jigawa, and the abduction of the mother of the All Progressives Congress’s (APC) senatorial candidate of Kano Central, Abdulkarim Abdulsalam.
The spokesperson of the police in the state, Lawan Adam, said the suspects were tracked by the police and members of a vigilante group during raids in separate locations in Kano and Jigawa.
Last month, PREMIUM TIMES reported how terrorists killed an immigration officer and injured two others in the Birniwa Local Government Area of Jigawa State, which is along the Nigerian border with Niger Republic.
Also, in June, the gunmen allegedly kidnapped the mother of Mr Abdulsalam at her residence in Ungogo Local Government Area of Kano.
The mother of the politician was later released in Jigawa, allegedly after a ransom was paid.
The police said the suspects were arrested in Larabawa herdsman camp, in Gabasawa…
