The Police Command in Abuja on Monday said it rescued 10 persons kidnapped by a gang of hoodlums in Darka village in Kuje Area Council of the FCT, Abuja.

The victims are Fanus Emmanuel, Babangida Emmanuel, Akimmi Dauda, Japheth Kwasu, Dorcas Shuaibu, Kemuche IK, Hamza Yunusa, Umar Godiri, Ismaila Yusuf and Abubakar Gomo.

A statement issued by the Command’s spokesman, Anjugurin Manzah, stated that eight of the victims were rescued on November 19, while the remaining two were rescued on November 20 in Toto and Karu in Nasarawa State.

Mr. Manzah noted that the rescue was made possible by a joint operation by the Police Mobile Force, Operatives of the command’s Special Anti-Kidnapping Squad, SSS, Nigerian Army, and NSCDC.

The spokesman stated that the stronghold of the assailants who specialised in raiding remote villages at night and robbing the villagers of cash and other valuables and kidnapping was destroyed during the operation.

He added that an operative of the NSCDC, Anumudu Uche, who took ill, died during the operation.

He recalled that the FCT Commissioner of Police, Muhammadu Mustafa, had reassured residents and affected villages of the command’s massive deployment to forestall a recurrence.

He said concerted efforts were in place to arrest the dislodged hoodlums.
