TWO Nigerian soldiers, Sergeant Alhaji Oloche (05NA/56/1435) and CPL Namo Daniel (09NA/62/1097) attached to the Operation Yaki security outfit in Kaduna State, have been arrested for alleged kidnapping.
The Operation Yaki team comprises operatives from the Police, Army, Air Force and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
Also arrested is another soldier attached to Headquarters 1 Division of the Nigerian Army, PTE Danladi Hadau (20NA/79/4219), along with two vigilantes identified as Mustapha Kasim and Ibrahim Mohammed.
They were accused of abducting a resident of Dorayi village in the Zaria Local Government Area of the state, Alhaji Lawal Ahmed on March 3, 2022.
The suspects were arrested while attempting to collect ransom around Dumbi Dutse Road in Zaria last weekend.
“After they kidnapped the man, they demanded ransom before his release. While waiting to collect the ransom at a meeting point around Dumbi Dutse Road in Zaria, they were all arrested.
“The three soldiers have been detained at a military facility in Kaduna while the two vigilantes were handed over to the police.
“It’s so sad, not supporting kidnapping but it’s a big shame on the army authorities.
“What do they expect soldiers to do when they are not paying us our entitlement and salaries as and when due.
“Senior officers of the Nigerian Army Finance Corps are using our salaries for business, they won’t pay salaries on time but keep it in banks to yield interest,” a military source told (SR).
