She said four suspects – Yahaya Abubakar of Mpape, Mohammed Mohamed of Zuba, an ex-convict, Umar Aliyu and Nura Abdullahi, also an ex-convict – were arrested during the operation.

According to her, the suspects have freely confessed to being members of a notorious bandit syndicate with the name ‘Mai One Million’, responsible for a series of kidnapping incidents in the territory.

“The coordinated operation, occasioned a shootout between the bandits and the security operatives, forcing them to scamper to safety and victims rescued. The illegally erected structures by the kidnappers in all the patrolled camps, were all decimated.
