The Kaduna State Police Command on Sunday, December 5, 2021, said its operatives stormed a kidnappers’ den on Saturday and rescued a 17-year-old victim.

Muhammed Jalige, Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, in a statement on Sunday, December 5, 2021, noted that at about 1400hours of December 4, 2021, its operatives, while on routine patrol around Sabon Birnin Daji forest, intercepted sounds of sporadic gunshots coming through the forest and decided to find out what was going on.

According to him, the operatives stormed the forest and exchanged gunfire with the kidnappers.

He added that during the encounter with the criminals, a 17-year-old boy, Mr. Sani Adams, was rescued, just as the bandits escaped with bullets wounds.

Jalige further said Adams was taken to Kutungare primary healthcare center for medical attention.

He said the victim was abducted while working on a rice farm around Afaka village in Kaduna, adding that an effort is being intensified to ensure that the vicinity is thoroughly combed for a possible rescue of more victims, and rid the area of criminal elements.

He advised members of the public not to be deterred by the isolated incidents and to report any kidnap case recorded within their areas.
