21 Kidnapped Kogi Travellers Secure Freedom

A total of twenty-one individuals who were taken hostage on the Ajaokuta-Itobe road in Kogi State on Thursday have been successfully liberated, as announced by the state government.

The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Yahaya Bello, Onogwu Muhammed, reported that a combined force of security personnel orchestrated the rescue operation.

The victims, primarily comprising travelers, had been forcefully transported to an undisclosed location within the dense forest near the Ajaokuta Local Government Area of Kogi State.

Fortunately, the joint efforts of security agents resulted in their recovery just two days after their abduction.

In a statement issued on Saturday, Muhammed disclosed, “The operation led to the apprehension of some of the kidnappers while those still at large are being trailed.”

Governor Yahaya Bello expressed gratitude to the security operatives for their role in liberating the abducted individuals, underscoring the commitment of his administration to collaborate in the ongoing fight against criminal activities.

Emphasizing the state’s uncompromising stance on criminality, Governor Bello cautioned individuals with malicious intentions against choosing Kogi as a haven, asserting that the state remains off-limits for criminals.
