Few hours after their abduction, three victims of a kidnap syndicate abducted along Siun/Ajura road in Ogere Remo area of Ogun State, have been rescued by operatives of Ogun state police command.
The victims; Jibril Afolabi, Alhaji Amusat Taofeek and Balikis Mohammed, were coming from Ilorin, kwara State heading to Owode- Egba when their vehicle was double crossed at about 3 a.m by gunmen who dragged them into the bush while other passengers escaped.
Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said :” On receiving the information, the commissioner of police CP Edward Awolowo Ajogun, directed the Area Commander at Shagamu, to mobilize men from all the divisions within the area and go after the hoodlums. He equally ordered the command’s anti- kidnapping unit as well as SWAT to move to the scene.
” The entire bush was cordoned off, and combed thoroughly with the assistance of hunters, local vigilantes and men of So Safe Corp. The heat on the hoodlums made them to abandon the victims and took to flight.
“All the victims were there and then rescued without any ransom paid. They have been escorted to their destination at Owode-Egba”
