He explained that after trailing the Speaker to his residence, the hoodlums attempted to enter his house to kidnap him, but their mission was made impossible by the intrepid Police officers on guard duty, and the timely response of the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), SP Ayuba and his men, who joined forces with the men on guard duty to repel the assailants.

He thanked members of the public for showing concern about the happenings in their various communities and volunteering to give timely information to the Police for prompt action.
DSP Alabo urged residents of the State to “Go about their lawful businesses as the Police were already doing a lot to ensure the safety of all and will continue to frustrate the evil and dastardly act of men of the underworld through the effective and proactive crime prevention strategies put in place by the chief crime buster of the State, CP Bartholomew Onyeka.”
