According to Acting Director Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Kukasheka Usman, the arrest followed a tip off by well meaning Nigerians that the kidnappers had arrived Dutsen Wai for ransom collection from their hapless victim's family.
Usman said the suspects were currently being investigated.
Kidnappings are rife in Kaduna. In June, Sierra Leone's former army chief, Major-General Nelson Williams, was abducted and later released.
