Nigeria Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT) has finally arrested the most wanted kidnap kingpin in northern Nigeria Audu alias “Commander Yellow” whose gang had been terrorizing the Abuja-Kaduna-Kano Expressway .
Politicos gathered that Yellow had confessed that he successfully carried out over 50 kidnappings and that his gang killed many innocent Nigerians during his numerous operations.
The 40 year old Yellow as he is widely called in the underworld has been on police watch list for armed robbery, murder, rape and kidnapping for a long period of time. Luck ran out of him this week when he was picked up by IRT operatives led by DCP Abba Kyari.
A senior police officer who spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not supposed to speak to the press said : “Yellow was leading a formidable gang that has killed many people. The gang has no mercy as it killed anyone who failed to pay ransom at the exact time it requested for it. The members would abuse their female victims. The worst of it all was that they would kill a victim and still collect ransom. We thank God that he and many of his key gang members have been apprehended by IRT.”
They suspect and members of his gang are still undergoing interrogation with the police. Many weapons and ammunition were recovered from the Suspects.
