Mr Wadume was the ‘high profile’ kidnapping suspect arrested by the police in Taraba state on August 6th. He was being driven to Jalingo, the state capital by the police team when soldiers opened fire on them along Ibi-Wukari Road, killing three police officers and a civilian and then releasing Wadume. He was rearrested by the police 13 days after.

Wadume after his arrest, confessed that some soldiers rescued him after he was initially arrested. In a video posted online, Wadume alleged that the soldiers who rescued him, took him to an apartment in Kano where the handcuffs on his legs and hands were cut off. The Army has since denied the allegation of its officers aiding a kidnap suspect.
