A special squad of Italian police  called ” the hunters” on Thursday night near Naples caught a  Camorra  mafia capo  who was on the run since  last September

Police dragged away in handcuffs,  Nicola Rullo, 47,  the  reputed ranking boss of the “Contini”clan  of  the Camorra mafia, who together with the Licciardi, Mallardo, and Casalesi  clans constitute  “the alliance of Secondigliano”, one of the most dangerous criminal federations operating  on a  national level

According to police,  Rullo, fearing  the unfavorable outcome of his  appeal  for  a first-degree felony conviction  for  mafia connected  extortion, went on the run  last September. In fact, the Naples Court of Appeal recently sentenced him to ten years of imprisonment and issued an order for custody.

The ”hunters” found him  hiding in a hilltop villa in Itri (Latina) in which they raided  and  surprised  Rullo  in his sleep
