THE BANDITS HOLDING SIX ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENTS OF POLICE CAPTIVE IN KATSINA STATE FOR OVER ONE WEEK ARE DEMANDING N100M RANSOM FOR THEIR RELEASE.

QUEST NEWS GATHERED THAT THE ASPS WERE AMONG THE NINE WHO WERE JUST PROMOTED TO THEIR CURRENT RANK. THEY WERE ATTACHED TO THE MOBILE POLICE SQUADRON 6, MAIDUGURI, BORNO STATE.

FINDINGS INDICATE THAT THEY WERE DEMOBILISED FROM THE RIOT UNIT AND EIGHT OF THEM WERE ON THEIR WAY TO THE ZAMFARA STATE POLICE COMMAND ON TRANSFER WHEN THEY WERE AMBUSHED IN THE DOGONDAJI AREA OF KATSINA STATE AND TAKEN INTO THE FOREST.

A RELIABLE POLICE SOURCE EXPLAINED THAT THE NINE ASPS WERE PLANNING TO GO TO ZAMFARA STATE TOGETHER BUT ONE OF THEM CHANGED HIS MIND AT THE LAST MINUTE WHILE THE OTHERS EMBARKED ON THE TRIP IN A COMMERCIAL BUS.

A SENIOR POLICE OFFICER SAID THE COMMANDER, MOPOL 6, COULD NOT ACCOUNT FOR THE MEN WHEN ASKED ABOUT THEIR ABDUCTION, ADDING THAT HE REFERRED INQUIRIES ON THE MISSING MEN TO THE ZAMFARA STATE POLICE COMMAND.

THE OFFICER EXPLAINED THAT THE NORMAL PROCEDURE WAS FOR THE COMMANDER TO SEND A SIGNAL TO THE ZAMFARA COMMAND INFORMING IT THAT HE HAD RELEASED THE NINE ASPS, BUT HE ALLEGEDLY FAILED TO FOLLOW THE OFFICIAL PROCEDURE.
