Nigerian Army rescues three kidnap victims in Kaduna

Aug 26, 2022

The Nigerian Army has rescued two men and an elderly woman kidnapped by armed bandits in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State. 

 

The General Officer Commanding (GOC) 1 Division Nigerian Army Maj Gen Taoreed Lagbaja accompanied by a team of operational commanders and operatives rescued the victims, while on an operational cum inspection tour in Kaduna state on Thursday, 25 August 2022.

 

Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, the Director of Army Public Relations, who confirmed the development in a statement on Friday, August 26, said the victims are currently receiving medical attention. 

 

“The GOC and his team rescued the victims from a group of armed kidnappers in Manini village, along Pole Wire – Birnin Gwari road, Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna state,” the statement read. 

 

“The kidnappers had abducted the victims and were taking off, when they were confronted by the GOC’s team. The hot exchange of fire that followed subdued the kidnappers, compelling them to scamper in disarray with gunshot wounds into nearby forest, abandoning their abductees.

 

“The rescued victims, comprising two adult males and an elderly woman have been conveyed to Kaduna, where they are currently receiving medical attention.”
