Faces Of Kidnappers Who Killed Dangote's Employee


THE police on Tuesday released the picture of three of those who killed a senior employee of Dangote Industries Limited, Istafinus Bello.



According to the police, the Inspector General of Police Intelligence Response Team arrested three of the kidnappers that murdered one and kidnapped five expatriate members of staff of DIL.


The IRT, said to be armed with credible intelligence, between November 27, 2016 and December 3, 2016 arrested three of the kidnappers: Abubakar Gide, 24; Abdullahi Salihu, 22; and Babuga Adamu, 25, in Ijebu Igbo, Ogun State; Epe Forest, Lagos State; and Ajase Ipo Forest, Kwara State respectively.


The suspects confessed to kidnapping and releasing all five initial victims after receiving N5.6 million ransom.


They also confessed to kidnapping and murdering the ransom transporter, Bello.


A statement by the spokesman of the police, Don Awunah, added: “However, it is imperative relations of kidnap victim(s) should exercise considerable restraint in negotiating and paying ransom. It is absolutely important the negotiators of ransom should have confidence in the police.”


The suspects were said to have since led the police to their hideout in Ijebu Igbo, Ogun State where three AK47 rifles, six AK47 magazines and 160 rounds of ammunition were recovered.


The suspects further led IRT operatives to Apoje River where the body of Bello was recovered.


Awunah said efforts are in progress to arrest other gang members who are currently at large in other states.


He added in the statement on Tuesday: “The IGP admonishes police officers not to get carried away by recent successes but instead redouble their efforts in the fight against crime; and has assured Nigerians that the police will remain undaunted in the collective fight against crime. As members of the public begin the yuletide celebrations, the police will ensure the celebrations are crime free.”

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
