Abducted Assistant Commissioner of Police, Musa Rabo, has been rescued.
Rabo, who is in charge of Suleja Area Command, Niger State, was rescued unhurt, a statement late on Sunday by Force Public Relations Officer, Deputy Commissioner of Police Frank Mba, said.
He was abducted on Saturday at about 3:30pm, a statement by the spokesman of the Kaduna State Police Command, Deputy Superintendent of Police Yakubu Sabo, said.
Mba said Rabo was rescued by a combined team of Police operatives from Kaduna and Niger State as and those of Zone 7 Command Headquarters, Abuja, backed by members of the elite Special Forces of the NPF.
Two male suspects have been arrested in connection with the incident, Mba further said, adding: “Investigation into the incident is ongoing.
“The officer was travelling in his civil dress, with his private vehicle and without escort or any special security at the time of the incident. He was not targeted as a cop. It was purely an opportunistic crime, indiscriminately and maliciously targeted at citizens using that particular road. He was, perhaps, positionally unlucky at the time of the incident!”
