Army rescues 4 victims from kidnappers

Troops of the Nigerian Army in an audacious rescue operation, have extricated 4 Kidnap victims abducted by a notorious gang of Kidnappers in Edo State.

“The Kidnappers had forcefully taken their captives, including a lady and 3 men into Ososo forest in Akoko Edo Local Government Area of the state, but were tracked and intercepted by the gallant troops, who engaged the criminals in a firefight and extricated the abductees”.

Major General Onyema Nwachukwu made this known on Thursday in a statement in Abuja

He said, “The troops apprehended one of the kidnappers, who is currently undergoing preliminary investigation and will be subsequently handed over to the appropriate prosecuting agency.

“One of the rescued victims who suffered from shock and fatigue has been evacuated to a medical facility, where he is receiving treatment, while others have been handed over to their families

“In a similar vein, troops of the Nigerian Army (NA) deployed to counter insurgency in North West Nigeria, on Wednesday 6 March 2024 successfully defended Damba Dikko village, a community in Illela Local Government Area of Sokoto State, which came under attack of marauding terrorists seeking to forcefully extort levies from the villagers.

“Responding to a distress call, vigilant troops swiftly stormed the village and engaged the insurgents in a gun duel, neutralizing 2 of them and rescued two villagers held hostage by the insurgents.

“The rescued villagers who suffered minor injuries have been given medical attention by Nigerian Army paramedics.

“The Nigerian Army appreciates members of the public for their cooperation with troops and other security agencies in the fight against security challenges in the country.

“It encourages them to continue to be vigilant and promptly report any suspected attempt to breach the security to relevant agencies.

“Together, we can restore peace and stability in our various communities, states and nations.”
