Police gun down kidnappers, rescue victims

Port Harcourt
Rivers State Police Command has again announced that the recent onslaught by the Command to smoke out criminals from the state yielded safe rescue of two more kidnapped victims, Bayo David and Iyabi Segun, on Tuesday December 15, and the killing of three of the suspected kidnappers.

A statement in Port Harcourt by Ahmad Muhammad, the State Police Command Public Relations Officer, PPRO, said “Their rescue came on the heels of the timely and actionable information received from a patriotic citizen who saw when the duo while in transit near Elebrada junction along East-West road were stopped by armed men and forcefully dragged into the nearby bush, abandoning the victim’s Toyota Highlander SUV by the road side.

“Quick response to the information by policemen and subsequent combing of the forest led to gun duel with the suspected kidnappers. The confrontation resulted in the safe rescue of the victims as three of the unidentified suspected kidnappers were gunned down while their other co-traveller escaped. The victims, according to them, were on their way to Lagos.”

The victim’s vehicle, two locally made pistols and two objects suspected to be charms were recovered after the rescue operation.
According to the police spokesman, members of the public who may come across similar incidents should call the following police distress lines: 08032003514, 08028915460, 08028915462 and 08160723892.
