Police rescue five Chinese, others from kidnappers den

Police operatives drawn from ‘Operation Puff Adder‘, have rescued 27 kidnapped victims including five Chinese Nationals from a forest in Birnin Gwari, Kaduna State.

This is just as the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, Thursday rolled out new counter-kidnapping operational strategies to speedily bring to an end the current internal security challenges being experienced in some parts of the country.

In a statement by the Force Spokesman, Frank Mba, a deputy commissioner of police, the police said the Chinese citizens were earlier kidnapped on April 15 in Bobi, Niger State.

Stating that their rescue was painstakingly executed after both air and ground surveillance, he said the kidnappers died from injuries sustained during exchange of gun fire with the police.
