THE Nigeria Police Force Intelligence Response Team (IRT) has arrested two suspects in connection with the abduction of a Catholic Priest in Kagarko LGA of Kaduna State.
The suspects, Abubakar Usman, 21 and Salisu Abdullahi, 28, were arrested following intense intelligence-led operations to unravel, arrest and bring to book, the criminal gang responsible for a series of related high-profile kidnap operations in Kaduna State.
