Police in Central Nigeria say criminals now go into 'unsuspecting' homes to kidnap.

The kidnappers are "not far from the communities," Spokesman, Plateau State Police Command, Mr. Tyopev Terna said, Thursday.

Some of the criminals according to the Deputy Superintendent of Police have been been identified through "intelligence network".

"We have gotten the profile of  some of them through our intelligence network.

"Sooner that later, they will meet their waterloo," Mr. Terna said in a statement.

He therefore requested information from citizens whose relatives have been kidnapped to enable the Force track and rescue them.

"The Commissioner of Police, Plateau State Command pleads with families of those affected to share information with  the police no matter the threat from the kidnappers with the assurance that such information will be treated with utmost confidentiality," the Police spokesman said.
