The Kaduna State Poluce Command police has rescued about 15 victims of kidnap operations in the Chikun local government area.
The Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, in a statement released in Kaduna on Saturday, said the police command confirmed the rescue in an operational feedback to the Kaduna state government.
“Rescue operations have been carried out successfully in different places of Chikun LGA. “he said.
Aruwan explained that in the first operational feedback, three kidnapped women were rescued in the general area of Rijiya Uku.
According to the report, the three women were kidnapped on November 18, 2020 when armed bandits attacked a village in a neighboring state.
“Since then, the bandits have moved the hostages to escape the security forces and eventually entered the LGA in Chikun,” he said.
He added that following a denunciation on April 1, after the hostages were sighted, police personnel mobilized in the area and hired the bandits, forcing them to abandon their captives.
In another operation, police rescued 12 people who had been similarly abducted following an attack by armed bandits along the Kaduna-Birnin Gwari road.
Aruwan revealed that members of a routine patrol found the 12 people in a forest in Buruku and ultimately rescued them as the criminals escaped.
