Notorious Kidnap Kingpin, Hamisu Bala Wadume has confessed on video that Soldiers helped him escape from Police detention.
It will be recalled that Wadume was the ‘high profile’ kidnapping suspect arrested by the police on August 6. He was being driven to Jalingo by the police team when soldiers opened fire on them along Ibi-Wukari Road, killing three police officers and a civilian.
Speaking in Hausa, Wadume said;”My name is Hamisu Bala, popularly known as wandume.
I was the one arrested by the Nigerian police force, as they were taking me away, the soldiers chased after us while shooting, in the process some police lost their lives.”
“They (soldiers) took me to their base where my handcuffs were removed and I escaped.”
“Since then I have been hiding, and not until now that I was rearrested by the police and taken to custody.”

The @PoliceNG says it hopes that Hamisu Wadume’s arrest, ”will, no doubt, help in bringing answers to the numerous but hitherto unanswered questions.”
