Misal said that the Commissioner of Police, Taraba Command, Alhaji Alkassim Sanusi, had directed men and officers of the command to rededicate efforts toward ridding the state of criminals, warning them all miscreants in the state would be fished out.

Umar said that he kidnapped his sister to force his father to cough out N10 million to enable him travel abroad.
