The Nasarawa State Police Command says it has arrested 62 suspected kidnappers within the last one week.

Commissioner of Police, Bola Longe, while parading the suspects at the command’s headquarters on Monday in Lafia, attributed the feat to the efforts of “Operation Puff Adder,” an initiative of the Inspector General of Police tasked with curbing the menace of violent crimes.

Longe said that the suspects, including two women, were arrested from various  hideouts in Nasarawa and Toto Local Government Areas of the state.

According to him, personnel of the command under the special “Operation Puff Adder,” raided the kidnappers’ hideouts at Mararaban-Udege, Odu hills and Gidan Kwano in Nasarawa Local Government on May 18 and May 21,  where they arrested 23 suspects.

He said that a similar raid on a hideout at Kenyehu village in Toto Local Government Area of the state paid off with the arrest of 39 suspects…
