The acting Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the immediate deployment of the Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Abdulrahaman, to the Force Intelligence Bureau, Force headquarters, Abuja.

This is as a result of rising wave of banditry and kidnapping in the state and along the Abuja-Kaduna Expressway.

Also, the Kaduna Police Command under Abdulrahman had failed to curb the wave of criminality.

Hundreds of commuters have been reportedly abducted by criminal gangs operating in Forests within Kaduna State.

The latest incident involved the abduction of the Secretary, Universal Basic Education Commission, Dr. Mohammed Abubakar and his daughter, Yesmin Mohammed, who were kidnapped along Abuja-Kaduna expressway on Monday.
