Men of the Nigeria Police Force on Wednesday rescued four National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members who were kidnapped on 9th March, 2020 along Funtua-Gusau Road on their way to NYSC Orientation Camp, Gusau, in Zamfara State.
Confirming the report, Force Public Relations Officer Force Headquarters, Abuja, DCP Frank Mba, said the successful rescue operation came as a result of diligent and intense intelligence gathering and sustained coordinated operations.
Mba said the four corps members were Oladehin Paul, Ojo Temitope, Ojewale Elizabeth and Adenigbuyan Adegboyega.
He said they had since been handed over to the Zamfara State Director of the National Youth Service Corps, while Mohammed Ardo, a co-traveller from Gusau who was also kidnapped along with the corps members had also been rescued and successfully reunited with his family.
Mba said the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu, while commending the Commissioner of Police in charge of Katsina state Command, CP Sanusi Buba, his operatives as well as good citizens of the State who supported the police operations, assured Nigerians of the unrelenting determination of the Force to rid the nation of all forms of crime and criminality.
