S
uspected abductors of German
archaeologists nabbed


The Department of State Services (DSS)
has announced the arrests of 20 Boko
Haram, and 11kidnap suspects across the
country.


Among those apprehended between
January and March, are a suspected Boko
Haram kingpin, Adenoyi Abdulsalam, who
had concluded plans to kidnap high-
profile individuals in Ekiti State, as well
as two kidnap suspects, whose alleged
involvement in the kidnap of two German
archaeologists in Kaduna last month, was
being investigated.


It will be recalled that the German
nationals, Dr. Peter Breuning and
Johannes Brehinger, were kidnapped on
February 22, at Pahkogo, Kagarko LGA,
Kaduna State.


The disclosure was made in a statement
by Mr. Tony Opuiyo, who further noted
that the on-going operations “have
significantly degraded capabilities of
hoodlums, especially kidnappers and
terrorists whose activities have
continually threatened the peace.”
Apart from Ekiti, other states where the
arrests were effected, are Bauchi, Gombe,
Kaduna, Kogi, Nasarawa and Yobe,
respectively.
