Birshin Fulani, a community in Bauchi has been suffering series of assault from kidnappers who have been making away with residents of the community.
The snatchers had murdrered two persons in recent times, one of whom (Mohammed Garbage Abubakar) was a senior staff member of Federal Poly Bauchi.
The newest attack was that of one Mrs Ruqayya Odedoyin (a mother of three) who was kidnapped on Friday morning.
Mrs Ruqayya was abducted from her abode when her three kids were locked indoors.
SP Wakil declared that issues surrounding her abduction were still unclear, adding that the police were working to get to the bottom of her kidnap.
The insecurity threat has thereby awakened the residents to resort to protesting the incessant kidnap in the community.
In the course of the protest on Friday, they had the Bauchi-Dass road barricaded for hours.
Having said that, the state police Command had assured adequate security of lives and property so as to ensure peace in the community.
SP Wakil disclosed that the security is now tight at Birshin Fulani for the presence of police in all areas of the community.
Wakil stated thus: “That is why they (police operatives) are given vehicles to be able to enter nooks and crannies. And if you look at it, the modus operandi of the kidnappers is the use of motorcycles. There are areas motorcycles can access that vehicles cannot.”
The PPRO, however, urged the generality of the public to always supply the police with helpful and graspable information with which the police would act upon.
