WARRI—DELTA State Police Command, weekend, shot dead three suspected kidnappers at Sapele and Ozoro and rescued two victims, including a woman from two different kidnap gangs.
One of the victims, Mr. Timiagi Onoriode, was rescued from kidnappers at Sapele while Madam Janny Ogbaide regained freedom following police intervention at Ozoro.
Mr Aduba, who spoke to Vanguard on efforts being made to rescue the international football star, abducted, last Saturday in Effurun, near Warri, said the police would not want any action that could jeopardize the life of the footballer; hence a tactical and methodical approach had been adopted for the rescue mission.
He said: “We are on course, the search is still on, but I cannot be telling you the actions we are going to take on the pages of newspapers because the kidnappers read what your write.”
One AK 47 rifle, two magazines and several rounds of live ammunition were recovered by the police from kidnappers at Sapele.
