Police rescue abducted officer in Kwara

By Our Correspondent 

A Police officer attached to IGP office,ASP Ahmed Yusuf who was abducted last week in Ilorin by six gunmen has been rescued.

It was reliably gathered that the victim, popularly called "Emirate No1",  serving at the Area command in Ilorin was abducted by gunmen evening of Tuesday last week as he was about entering his house in Oloje area of the state capital.

The rescuee ASP  is currently undergoing medical examination and would be allowed to join his family as soon as he is confirmed fit by the police medical doctor.

Spokesman of the State Police command, Ajayi Okasanmi confirmed in a statement in Ilorin on Sunday that Yusuf has been rescued from his abductors.

The statement reads,"The Kwara State Police Command wishes to inform the public  that  ASP Ahmed Yusuf of IGP Monitoring Team attached to Kwara State Police Command that was abducted in his house in Oloje area of Ilorin on 11/10/2022 at about 2200hrs by six armed hoodlums has been rescued. 

"He was rescued  about 0230hrs today at a bush border between Kwara and Oyo state."The statement added.

It noted that ,"the rescue efforts was made possible by the insistence of the Commissioner of Police Kwara State, CP Paul Odama, who declared that rescuing the kidnapped  officer  unhurt and possible arrest of the criminal abductors is a task that must be achieved.

" Consequently, the CP dispatched the Command's Tactical Teams, local Vigilante and  hunters with support of the Oyo State Amotekun squad."

It further stated that,"the efforts by the combined team yielded the expected result as the kidnappers escaped and abandoned the abducted ASP under severe pressure of being arrested, the moment they found out the teams had formed a ring around their location, the victim thereafter sauntered to where the police teams were waiting for him and was rescued."

The CP reportedly noted in the statement that his determination to make Kwara State inhabitable to criminal elements still stands and that  Kwara state would never be allowed to play host to criminal elements of whatever nomenclature.
