Police Rescue Ex-FCT Minister, Ewuga From Kidnappers

THE Nasarawa State Police Command has said that its operatives on Wednesday rescued a former Minister of State for the Federal Capital Territory, and former Nasarawa State Deputy Governor, Senator Solomon Ewuga, unhurt a few hours after his abduction.

Ewuga was reportedly kidnapped on Tuesday at Kurmin Shinkafa, close to Gudi town in Akwanga Local Government Area of the state on his way to Abuja.

When contacted, the state Police Command Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Ramhan Nansel, confirmed the rescue of the politician.

He said: “The former senator was on his way to Abuja and was kidnapped at about 20:40 hours, but due to mounted pressure by men of the Nigerian Police Force who were alerted on time, moved into the forest and rescued the senator.

“No arrest was made, but the command is not relaxing over the matter to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to book as investigation was ongoing.”

“As I speak with you, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Adesina Soyemi, has ordered operatives of the command to move into the forest for possible arrest of the criminals,” the PPRO said.
