“In another development, on September 16, 2022, around 2230hrs, the DPO Agbarho Police Station received information that some armed hoodlums stormed the residence of one man (name withheld) along Railway Station Road, Agbarho, kidnapped him, and drove him out of the premises towards the railway.”

“The DPO assigned and led Police operatives who pursued the hoodlums.” When the hoodlums saw the policemen, they fired intermittently at them, but the police equally responded, and the hoodlums abandoned the victim and ran into the bush due to the superior firepower of the police.

“The victim, who had been tied and kept in the trunk of the car, was rescued unharmed.” When the vehicle was searched, 50 live cartridges were discovered. The police are working hard to apprehend the fleeing hoodlums.

“The suspect claimed that he purchased the vehicle in Onitsha for N1.5 million and that all original documentation was with the previous owner.”

“However, subsequent investigations revealed that the vehicle belongs to one man (name withheld), who was kidnapped on 20/8/2022 at Ozubulu in Anambra State, released after a ransom was paid, and the vehicle was taken from him.” The suspect will be handed over to the Anambra Police Command for further investigation.”
