Famous kidnap gang leader, Hamisu Bala Wadume, has made startling revelations about the killing of three policemen by soldiers in Taraba State on August 6, which aided his eventual escape after being arrested by the police officers.
Recall that three of the policemen on a covert mission to arrest Wadume were pursued and gunned down by the military which resulted in the mysterious disappearance of the notorious kidnapper.
Wadume, who was rearrested in the late hours of Monday, in his hideout at Layin Mai Allo Hotoro area of Kano State by operatives of the Nigeria Police, confessed in a video during interrogation that soldiers facilitated his escape.
Speaking in Hausa, Wadume, said: “I am Hamisu Bala also known as Wadume. The police came to Ibi and arrested me.
“After arresting me, they were taking me away when soldiers went after them and opened fire and some policemen were killed.
“From there, the soldiers took me to their headquarters and cut off the handcuffs on my hands and I ran away.
“Since I ran away, I have been hiding until now that the police arrested me.”
