Four out of 10 suspected kidnappers have been arrested by the State Security Service (SSS), in Kogi State command on Wednesday, July 27, 2016.
The Nigerian Tribune reports that the four have been paraded for arraignment.
Mr Joseph Okpo, state director of the command, disclosed that the command had arrested the four who are part of a six-man gang operating on Abuja-Lokoja highway.
He adds that they specialised in robbery and kidnapping on the major roads, aided by the uniforms.
The suspects have reportedly confessed to being involved in some operations on Maraba-Jos Road, Malufashi on Zaria-Kaduna and Jaji-Zaria Road, in the uniforms.
Mumuni Adamu, identified as the leader of the gang, revealed that they got the military uniforms from a commercial motorcyclist.
