The Police in Oyo State on Friday say they rescued three kidnapped victims who were abducted by gunmen at Onipe Village, along Ijebu-Ode-Ibadan road on Monday.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that three females were on Monday abducted at Onipe village, Oyo State.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Adewale Osifeso, confirmed the rescue of the abductees in a statement issued on Friday and made available to journalists in Ibadan.
Mr Osifeso said the rescue was made possible as a result of pressure and intelligence along with effective utilisation of local hunters and vigilantes under the supervision of the Police.
“They combed the suspected location in search of the abductees before recording the breakthrough.
“The Commissioner of Police is hereby using this medium to appeal to the good people of the state not to relent in sharing credible and timely information with the Police for effective discharge of its duties,” he said.
According to Mr Osifeso, the state commissioner of policemen, Ngozi Onadeko, vowed to continue to protect lives and properties.
