Operatives of the Intelligence Response Team of the Nigerian Police have neutralised a notorious and wanted kidnapping kingpin whose gang had been terrorising residents of the FCT after a gun duel.

According to a statement issued by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Muyiwa Adejobi, the kidnapping kingpin, Isa Dei-Dei, and his gang members opened fire on IRT operatives when they approached their hideout.

Adejobi said, “At about 10.15 am on February 5, 2024, operatives of the DFI-IRT, acting on intelligence, got information on the hideout of a notorious bandit group in the suburb of the FCT, led by one Isa Dei-Dei, and immediately proceeded to the location for possible arrest.

“Upon closing in on them, they sighted the police and fled.”

According to the police, “The operatives immediately went after them, which led to a fierce gun duel.”

“In the process, the notorious Isa Dei-Dei was neutralised while other members of the syndicate managed to escape with gunshot injuries.

“We therefore urge members of the public, most especially medical practitioners, to call our attention to anyone or patients seen with gunshot wounds for further investigation,” Adejobi added.
