Alleged Taraba state kidnap kingpin, Hamisu Bala popularly known as Wadume,
has been reportedly re-arrested and taken to the Louis Edet House Force headquarters in Abuja.
Police spokesman Frank Mba is yet to respond to inquiries on the matter but there are
indications that police may issue an official statement in the next few hours on the breakthrough.
Wadume’s escape after an attack on his police captors by soldiers and a village mob along
Ibi-Wukari road in Taraba state on August 6 sparked off massive public reactions and led to
the constitution of a special investigative panel.
The investigation panel, which is working with presidential authority, was initially scheduled
to conclude its findings last week but was given two additional weeks.
