FCT Minister Nyesom Wike Places N20 Million Bounty on Wanted Kidnappers in Abuja

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory Administration, Nyesom Wike, has offered a N20 million bounty on two wanted kidnappers, Dahiru Adamu and Abu Ibrahim, who have allegedly been terrorizing the nation’s capital, Abuja.

Wike issued the directive during a meeting with the FCT Commissioner of Police, Bennett Igweh, at the FCT Police Command Headquarters in Garki, Abuja, on Wednesday.

Wike emphasized that the kidnappers, who remain at large, must be apprehended either dead or alive. The announcement came during a parade of 23 criminal suspects, and the minister made it clear that his administration is determined to eliminate criminal activities in the FCT.

A combined team of operatives from the Utako Divisional Headquarters and the Anti-Kidnapping team had already made progress by arresting seven members of the kidnapping gang. The arrested suspects – Usman Muhazu, Aliyu Muhammed, Auwal Lahiru, Rabiu Sani, Madina Abubakar, Jonah Elimelechi, and Saminu Idris – were apprehended in Pyankasa, Tudun Wada, and Ketti village in the FCT. They are believed to be connected to the kidnapping of 14 notable individuals in the Federal Capital Territory.

During the meeting with the Commissioner of Police, Wike called for an intensified effort to eradicate all forms of criminality in Abuja. He announced the N20 million bounty on the remaining two kidnappers, urging the police to deploy additional intelligence to track down and apprehend them.

The significant reward underscores the commitment of the FCT administration to ensuring the safety and security of residents, sending a strong message against criminal activities in the nation’s capital.
