Exposed, Captain Balarabe Tijani, Is The Army Captain Who Ordered The Killing of Policemen And Helped Kidnap Kingpin, Wadume Escape
The Inspector General of police mobilized special police forces such as IRT operatives from Rivers, Lagos, Imo, Kaduna, Abuja and the Technical Intelligence Unit (TIU), to ensure that fleeing kidnap kingpin Bala Wadume, was arrested alive and brought to book. And their efforts paid off, as Wadume was arrested in Kano and brought to the Force Headquarters Abuja yesterday, Monday.
During his confessional video statement, which he made in Hausa, due to his inability to speak English, Wadume revealed the name of the army captain who ordered the killing of the policemen and helped him escape as Captain Balarabe Tijani.
The Commanding Officer of 93 Battalion Ibi, Taraba State, Captain Tijani, reportedly employed the services of a welder in the community to destroy the hand and leg cuffs on Bala Wadume, and then set him free.
Captain Tijani, is said to have been interrogated by the panel from the Defence Headquarters, however Wadume revealed that Tijani used the help of a welder to remove the leg and hand cuffs from his friend after the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Ibi Command, Aondona Augustine Iorbee, whom he contacted for the keys, denied having them.
Top police sources who spoke in anonymity to reporters in Abuja, said that Captain Tijani also contacted the Ibi Command station’s Crime Officer, Inspector Aliyu Dadje, who also said he did not have the keys. So he then used a welder to destroy the cuff keys in his house at the military base, where he had taken Wadume to after rescuing him from the operatives.
The Nigerian Police Force are resolute in ensuring that they get justice for their slain operatives and also prove that the police is not a second-hand security agent or in anyway inferior to the military.
