In a significant breakthrough, troops from the 93 Battalion under 6 Bridget of the Nigerian Army have apprehended a suspected female kidnapper, identified as Janet Igohia, in Taraba State. The 31-year-old suspect believed to be married to the second-in-command to the late Hana Terwase, was arrested while attempting to collect ransom for an abducted victim in the Chanchangi area of Takum LGA.
