Security Operatives Rescue 16 Abducted Passengers In Kogi


February 26, (THEWILL) – Security operatives have rescued 16 kidnapped victims from their abductors in Kogi State.

Spokesperson of the Kogi Police Command, SP Williams Ovye-Aya, described the rescue operation as “very swift and pragmatic.”

Eleven of the victims, he said, were passengers from Peace Mass Transit Bus, while five from Sienna Bus were reportedly abducted on Sunday, February 25, along Ette Enugu-Ezike Road and taken to the bush.


Ovye-Aya, who said no arrest had been made, vowed to apprehend the suspects and bring them to face justice. According to him, security operatives were out there combing the bush to arrest the culprits in order to bring them to book.

“We are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that kidnappers are arrested and prosecuted to serve as a deterrent to others. As security operatives, we are out to arrest the menace of kidnapping and other criminal activities in Kogi and the country as a whole.

“Already, our Commissioner of Police in Kogi Command, Bethrand Onuoha, is happy with the rescue operation and has commended the Joint security team,” he said.

Ovye-Aya appealed to the good people of the state for their continued collaboration with the Police and other security agencies in ensuring adequate security of lives and property in Kogi State.
