Police nab 280 suspects, rescue 158 kidnapped victims in Kaduna

The operatives of the Kaduna State Police Command have arrested at least 280 suspected criminals and rescued about 158 kidnapped victims from January to date.

The Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, disclosed this on Thursday at a press briefing at the command.

Adejobi said: “I am pleased to highlight the significant achievements in our crime-fighting endeavours, with a particular focus on the Abuja-Kaduna expressway corridor and communities in Kaduna State, spanning from January to date.

“Notably, I would like to draw attention to a strategic initiative implemented along the Abuja-Kaduna expressway, which has significantly contributed to our successes.”

According to him, under the directive of the Inspector-General of Police, a helicopter has been deployed to serve as an escort for trains plying the route.

He stated that the helicopter provides aerial support for ground troops from the armed forces, police, and other security agencies.

“It has been deployed along the corridor as a proactive measure to prevent attacks and act as a first responder in the event of any untoward incidents,” Adejobi said.

He said this proactive measure has proven instrumental in enhancing security along the corridor, ultimately safeguarding the lives and property of commuters and residents of the adjourning communities along the route.

The police spokesperson said: “During this period, our proactive measures and relentless pursuit of criminal elements have resulted in remarkable outcomes.”
