The Nigeria Police Force has confirmed the re-arrest of a notorious millionaire kidnapper, Hamisu Wadume who escaped from Police custody with help from personnel of the Nigerian Army leading to the murder of three police officers, two civilians and injury of five others.

Wadume escaped when the operatives of Intelligence Response Team came under attack from soldiers attached to Battalion 93, Takum in Taraba State, as they conveyed the kidnap suspect from the scene of his arrest leading to a tense relationship between the two institutions.

Nigerian Police Force spokesman, Mr. Frank Mba described how the Police re-arrested the millionaire kidnapper, Hamisu Wadume in a statement made available to the media Tuesday.
The statement read,
The operatives of the Nigeria Police have re-arrested the notorious kidnap kingpin, Alhaji Hamisu Bala Wadume.
His arrest followed massive manhunt launched by the Police special forces and IRT members. He was re-arrested in the late hours of Monday, August 19, at his hideout at Layin Mai Allo Hotoro area of Kano State. 
It would be recalled that the Police had been on the massive manhunt for the suspect, Alhaji Hamisu Bala Wadume, since  August 6,  following the unfortunate incident in Ibi, Taraba State which resulted in the brutal murder of three Police Officers and two  civilians, and injury to five others.
The suspect, who was appropriately restrained at the time of the incident, was subsequently released by his “rescuers” (personel of the Nigerian Army) after they had destroyed the restraining handcuffs.
The Police noted that Wadume’s arrest will no doubt, help in bringing answers to the numerous but hitherto unanswered questions touching on the incident and the larger criminal enterprise of the suspect.
