A kidnapper was shot dead by the police on Sunday when he and his gang arrived to receive N2 million ransom demanded from relatives of their victims at a spot in a village in Toungo Local Government Area of Adamawa state.

Other members of the gang reportedly ran away with gunshot injuries in the operation carried out by the police in collaboration with hunters, Adamawa Police spokesman, SP Suleiman Nguroje, stated in Yola on Monday.

Nguroje added that the two victims of the kidnappers, Suleiman Abdullahi (23), and Ruwa Buba (11), residents of Mayo Sumsum Village in Toungo Local Government Area, were rescued unhurt.

“One kidnapper was neutralised when he and his gang arrived at a spot to receive N2 million ransom demanded from relatives of the kidnapped victims.

“The suspected kidnappers sighted our men around the area and engaged them in a gun duel so as to escape arrest.

“One of them was neutralised while others escaped with bullet wounds,’’ he stated.

He stated also that Commissioner of Police in Adamawa, Mr Afolabi Babatola, commended operatives of Toungo Divisional Police Office and the hunters for their gallantry.

Babatola directed the joint operations team to track down fleeing members of the kidnap gang to ensure that they did not re-group anywhere in the state.

The police commissioner charged residents to always inform the police of the whereabouts of criminals, especially those found with bullet wounds,’’ Nguroje stated. (NAN)
