After two weeks of hiding and running away from the police, captured suspected kidnapper, Hamisu Bala Wadume, has explained how he escaped from the operatives of Intelligence Response Team on August 6th 2019.
In a video clip posted on the verified Twitter handle of Nigeria Police Force on Tuesday, Wadume, who spoke in Hausa, virtually implicated soldiers at the Battalion 93, Takum, Taraba State, in his escape from the IRT custody.
The suspect, who is alleged to have received millions of naira as ransom from his victims, said, “My name is Hamisu Bala Wadume.
“Police came to arrest me, when they arrested me, army chased after them and opened fire.
“From there, they (soldiers) took me to their headquarters, and cut open my handcuffs.
“I went back to my house and Police came to re-arrest me…”
