In Toro Local Government Area of Bauchi State, gunmen thought to be bandits have reportedly kidnapped a guy thought to be a police officer.
According to reports, the incident took place on September 15’s Friday night and caused chaos throughout Toro.
This occurs just after security forces in Bauchi’s Alkaleri LGA successfully negotiated the release of 33 kidnapping victims.
The armed men reportedly shot randomly, frightening locals before kidnapping an unnamed assistant superintendent of police, or ASP.
Economic activity in Toro LGA has been impacted by kidnappers’ actions since locals are reluctant to conduct business for fear of being kidnapped.
AIsmail Haruna Dabo, a member of the House of Representatives who represents the Toro Federal Constituency, denounced the event and urged restraint.
Given the nation’s current economic predicament, he called the incident unpleasant and regrettable and told the populace that he would continue to use the legislative process to address the problem.
SP Ahmed Wakili, the public relations officer for the Bauchi State Police, has not returned calls.
According to the spokeswoman, both victims were freed without incident, and three of the alleged kidnappers have been detained.
After receiving a useful intelligence report, police officers sprang into action and stormed the hoodlums’ hideaway between Amata Ishiagu in Ebonyi and Lokpanta in Abia. When the hoodlums saw the police officers, they started shooting, but the police’s superior firepower was able to stop them.
The statement read, “Three of the hoodlum’s gang members were arrested unharmed, while one of the hoodlums was neutralized during the gun duel.”
