A wanted kidnapper, Ubale Mohammed has been arrested by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) in Taraba.
Ubale had terrorized Karim Lamido Local Government Area; he took several people hostage at different times.
The notorious criminal was apprehended in the Garau community, following intelligence, after months on the run.
The people living in that area lauded the NSCDC for the operation and demanded his prosecution as in the case of kidnap kingpin, Hamisu Wadume.
Mohammed Waksha, the State Commandant, told reporters on sighting officers, Ubale destroyed his sim card and threw his phone telephone in a river.
Waksha said the corps were searching for other gang members and vowed that hoodlums would be flushed out of Taraba.
The NSCDC chief disclosed that other security agencies were also on the trail of Ubale’s boys.
