Police Foil Kidnap Attempt In Abuja, Rescue Two Persons

THE operatives of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command have foiled an attempt to abduct two persons by gunmen in the Bwari area of Abuja.

The police rescued the two female victims after the gunmen invaded the Guto village in the Bwari area of the nation’s capital on Sunday, June 30, 2024.


Confirming the incident, the FCT police spokesperson, Josephine Adeh, said the command’s anti-kidnapping unit mobilised to the scene of the attack and trailed the gunmen.

Adeh stated: “Displaying remarkable bravery, the police, in synergy with DSS hunters, trailed and advanced on the assailant, tactically ambushing them at Gauraka Forest in Niger State, bordering the FCT.

“This led to an intense gun duel as the kidnappers were overwhelmed by the operatives, forcing them to scamper to safety through the nearby bushes with varying degrees of bullet injuries, and the two kidnapped victims were rescued unhurt.

“While the victims have since been reunited with their family, the FCT Commissioner of Police, CP Benneth Igweh, reaffirms the command’s unflinching commitment to maintaining peace and security in the nation’s capital.”
