DSP Wasiu said after a complaint was lodged about the activities of the suspected kidnappers, Mashegu Division tactical squads, in collaboration with local vigilantes, mobilized and tailed the hoodlums into the forest. According to him the tailing was based on credible intelligence about their movements.

As a result, the team discovered the hoodlums’ temporary hideout within the forest, where they were engaged in a gun battle that led to the arrest of Bello Ibrahim, a 25 year old man from Bafarawa, Isa LGA of Sokoto State.
