The Adamawa police command says it has arrested five Cameroonians over the attempted kidnap of Emmanuel Ebel, a resident of Jambutu in Yola-North LGA.

Suleiman Nguroje, the command’s spokesperson, announced the arrest on Saturday in Yola, the state capital.

He said the abduction was averted following reliable information that led to the arrest of the “illegal” immigrants.

Nguroje listed the suspects to include Chubrandom Safinga, 30; Ibrahim Tala, 32; Ngosso Ndjombe, 28; Mmai Rostand, 32; and Nossu Ngambewo Ricky, 27.


“The command operatives attached to State Intelligence Bureau in sustained effort foiled an organised crime to kidnap one Emmanuel Ebel a resident of Jambutu, Yola North local government area,” he said.

“The command upon receiving the information designed a security ring around the target and luckily engaged the suspected kidnappers.

“All illegal immigrants from the neighbouring Cameroon Republic were arrested 20 minutes before implementing their organised crime.


“The commissioner of police, CP Sikiru Akande, while commending OC SIB and his men for gallantry performance and professional conduct displayed leading to their arrest, also directs them to sustain the tempo as a strategy for Crime prevention.”

Nguroje said the commissioner urged residents to always inform the police of the whereabouts of criminals and their accomplices.
