The Anti-Kidnap Squad of the Anambra State Police Command have rescued a kidnap victim, and recovered a hand-made grenade from the suspects.
The state police command states this Thursday in a release by its public relations officer, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga. He said the incident happened at Nnewi Ichi.
The squad, which was on patrol with vigilante men on 13th September, 2023, got information about the kidnappers’ hideout and stormed the place, it was gathered.
Ikenga stated that, “A kidnapped victim found in the hideout was rescued and conveyed to a hospital at Nnewi for treatment. One of the suspected kidnappers was arrested.
“Operatives recovered one pump action gun and two locally fabricated hand grenades at the hideout.”
In another development, CP Adeoye has commended Anambra State judiciary for its quick dispensation of justice.
The commissioner was reacting to the arraignment and remanding of 34 suspects charged with cultism and other related offences.
He said delay in justice dispensation was mitigating against war against crimes.
He recalled his meeting with the state attorney general and commissioner for justice on ways of enhancing criminal trials, adding that with the cooperation the command ‘is receiving from critical stakeholders, the war against crimes will be won and Anambra State will soon become investment destination of choice’.
