The Bauchi State Police Command has rescued about 100 hostages including one Engr. Ali Usman of PHCN Abuja just as it arrested over 88 suspects including 59 suspected kidnappers and 14 armed robbery suspects.

Addressing the press, the police commissioner, Zaki Ahmed, said the suspects have volunteered very useful information to the Police regarding their nefarious activities and level of involvements.
The police boss disclosed that 71 suspects were charged to 13 others are under investigations.
According to him, the proactive steps taken by the command through robust synergy with other security agencies, vigilante groups and other stakeholders has continued to yield positive results.
He said the command has recovered two AK 47 rifles 11 dane guns, five single barrel guns, two locally made revolver pistols with seven round of 9mm live ammunition five fabricated pistols and two fabricated guns.
Other exhibits recovered, according to the commissioner, included 1 laptop, 9 handsets, 53 wraps of dry leaves suspected to be Indian hemp, 1 knife, 1 DVD player, 1 television, and 21 solar batteries stolen from MTN Mast.
He said the command, following intelligence report, recently foiled an attempted jail break and arrested one Mal. Mahmud Tanimu who had concluded plans with his accomplices to break the Bauchi Federal prison in order to free his brother who is standing trial in a case of terrorism.
“The Command has maintained a synergy and robust Inter agency co-operation with a view to sharing intelligence to assist in combating crimes. Equally, tremendous efforts are made in collaboration with all major stakeholders to get valuable information which after evaluation can be used as actionable intelligence that can assist in fighting crime in the state.
“The whole idea is to nip in the bud these emergent trends of crime presently bedevilling the state due to influx of suspected Cattle Rustlers, Kidnappers and Insurgents and other misguided elements from the neighbouring states,” he added.
The commissioner assured members of the public that the command is fully committed and battle ready towards ensuring safety and security in the state and urging residents to “feel free to come forward with any reasonable information and be rest assured that it will be treated with outmost confidence.”
