A suspected kidnapper believed to have taken part in the abduction of the lawmaker representing Zaria City Constituency in the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Abdullahi Ibrahim Dabo, has been feared killed.

The Nation gathered that the suspect was feared killed during a gun duel with the police on a routine patrol of the Kaduna-Zaria expressway on Sunday.

Although police spokesman Yakubu Sabo is yet to react to the development, a security source said the suspect alongside four other gang members were engaged in a gun battle with the police while trying to block the highway.

He said a locally-made rifle was recovered from the suspects.

The Nation learnt that the kidnappers were the hoodlums who abducted the Kaduna State House Assembly member last Friday.
