NSCDC kills one kidnapper, rescues a foreigner in Oyo State

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps has foiled an attempt by some gunmen to abduct a foreigner on a farm in Ibadan, Oyo State capital.

The NSCDC Public Relations Officer, Oyo State, Oyindamola Okuneye, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday, saying the security agents reportedly killed one of the kidnappers during a gun battle

The statement read, “The officers of the Corps yesterday (Wednesday) around 10:30pm shot one suspected kidnapper at Easy Gate Farm on Abanla Ogunmakin Road, Ibadan, Oyo State.

“The suspected kidnappers, numbering eight, gained entry to the farm to kidnap the owner of the farm, who is a foreigner, but had to engage the gallant officers of the Corps in a gun battle.

“One of the kidnappers was shot dead and others escaped with various degrees of bullet wounds.

“The suspected kidnappers had in June visited the farm to kidnap and one of our officers was shot during the gun battle.

“The commandant of the NSCDC in the state, Michael Adaralewa, is using this medium to call on residents of the state to join hands with all security agencies by giving credible information to them.

However, he urged the people to inform anything happening in their areas to security agencies around them, anytime they suspect anybody with bullet wounds so as to arrest other fleeing members of the kidnap gang that escaped with bullet injuries.
