FCT Police Loses Operative, Launch Rescue Operation for Kidnapped Victims
The FCT Police Command repelled multiple attacks by suspected kidnappers in the wee hours of Tuesday 13th April,2021 along Dankusa, Angwan-Zegele-Zuba axis.
Following a distress call from Angwan Zegele, a joint team of Police Operatives from the Command and Operation Puff Adder responded promptly as they engaged the heavily armed hoodlums in a fierce gun battle. Unfortunately, one of the gallant officers one Inspector Ambi John attached to Operation Puff Adder sustained fatal gunshot injuries during the operation and was rushed to the hospital where he died while receiving treatment.
However, the Command has launched a strategic operation to the rescue four persons abducted from Dankusa still in the custody of the hoodlums who escaped into the forest bordering the FCT and Niger State. Nonetheless, Operatives of the Command’s Anti-Kidnapping Squad have made some arrests in connection with the abduction.
In view of the above, the Commissioner of Police CP. Bala Ciroma wishes to commiserate with the family of the officer who paid the supreme price in service to the Nation and ensure that all the victims are safely reunited with their families.
