DHQ reacts to Taraba kidnap kingpin, Wadume’s rearrest by Police
The Defence Headquarters has assured that the Joint Investigative Panel probing into the killings of three police detectives and a civilian in Taraba during the escape of billionaire kidnap kingpin Hamisu Bala popularly known as Wadume, would ensure that justice is served on all parties involved in the matter.
Reacting to the re-arrest of Wadume in Kano by police detectives, a top military source said the re-arrest of Wadume would clear all doubts, apprehensions and the perceptions that have been created around the case.
The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: ” I can tell you that the Joint Panel constituted by the Defence Headquarters would do a thorough job regarding this case. There is no cause for apprehension any more.
“I don’t want to pre-empt the work of the Panel, but I can assure you that justice will be served to all parties involved in this matter. I have confidence that the Panel will unearth the truth and clear doubts of everyone”.
However, the Nigerian Army as at the time of filing this report was yet to re-act to the re-arrest of Wadume by police detectives in Kano.
Army Spokesman Col. Sagir Musa could not be reached as sources within the Army Headquarters confirmed that he is currently out of the country.
The source added that the Army would not like to put spanners in the work of the Joint Investigative Panel by way of commenting on issues that are already before the panel.
