By Adadareporters

Police operatives in Anambra State have intensified manhunt for the kidnappers who escaped during an ensuing gunbattle with the operatives last Friday.

Recall that the operatives with the support of local vigilantes had encountered the kidnappers at Awgbu in Orumba North Local Government Area of the state, and recovered four stolen vehicles in the process. They also rescued four kidnap victims.

The hoodlums however escape into the bush. The state police commissioner had tasked the operatives to fish out the alleged kidnappers.

The state police public relations officer, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, stated that, “While combing the sorrounding bushes on Saturday morning, police and the local vigilante recovered a loaded AK-47 rifle with double magazines containing 50 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition. The weapon was promptly rendered safe and taken into custody for further investigation.”

Meanwhile, the commissioner of police, CP Aderemi Adeoye, praised the diligence of the joint team, and promised to reward their commitment to public safety.

It was gathered that the command’s Special Anti-Kidnapping Unit at Awkuzu has taken over the case for proper investigation as directed by the CP.

The commander of the unit assured that the operatives would leave no stone unturned until the kidnap suspects are brought to justice.

Meanwhile, the four male victims rescued from the kidnappers last Friday have been re-united with their families, the PPRO said.
