Security Forces in a joint operation led by the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Command of the Nigerian Police on Thursday rescued abducted 14 persons and arrested one of the suspected kidnappers.
A competent police source told the Nigerian Tribune that the victims were rescued by the security forces along the Bwari axis of the metropolis following a tip-off.
The source explained that the joint security operation consisted of the operatives of the Police tactical squad, operatives of the Department of State Security Service (DSS) and the local vigilantes who raided the criminals’ hideout, following actionable intelligence.
Our source further added that the members of local vigilante and hunters in the axis also provided useful information and support in the joint operation which also led to the apprehension of one of the kidnappers.
It was gathered that already the FCT Commissioner of Police (CP), Bala Ciroma, has directed that the victims be taken a medical facility for comprehensive medical attention after which they would be reunited with their families.
The victims were reportedly kidnapped recently by gunmen around Bwari axis.
