Police Burst Kidnap Den, Rescue Two Kidnapped Victims in Anambra



The Anambra State Police command says its collaborative with other security operatives resulted in rescue of two kidnap victims and recovery of two stolen vehicles.

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, said in a statement that security operatives intercepted a seven man kidnap gang along Awada in Obosi Idemili North local government areas of State but six out of the seven gang members escaped.

According to him the kidnappers abandoned two victims as well as two vehicles- a Toyota Highlander jeep with registration number NSH 398 HA and Toyota Camry with registration number BRS 941 AA.

DSP Ikenga further disclosed that the seventh member of the gang who was caught was lynched by angry mob who set him ablaze before police operatives could arrive the scene.

His words “Consequently, the Commissioner of Police CP Echeng while condemning the act of mob action by some members of the public who resort to jungle justice whenever they arrest suspects in respect of criminal allegations without recourse to the Police for proper investigation.

“He also urged them to always exercise restraint by not taking the law into their hands. They should endeavour to take such suspects to the nearest Police Station whenever they are apprehended. This would afford the Police the opportunity to conduct appropriate investigation into the nefarious activities of the suspects; and bring them to justice in accordance with extant laws.

The police spokesperson also stated that “police operatives have initiated operation aimed at arresting the fleeing gang members and suspects who took laws into their hands by setting ablaze the arrested suspect” .
