Security: Joint Security Team, Hunters Gun Down 2 Kidnappers in Lokoja LGA


A Joint patrol team comprising the Nigeria Police, Obajana Division and the Lokoja Hunters Group has recorded a huge success in the fight against Kidnapping on Monday, 27th May, 2024 in Ankumi, Uyo Community.

The Caretaker Transition Committee Chairman of Lokoja LGA, Comrade Abdullahi Adamu this morning received the corpse of the criminals from the Obajana Divisional Police Officer, DPO Oguche R.A.

Following a tip off, the security personnel ambushed the 3-man Kidnapping gang which led to the death of 2 of the criminals while the last one escaped with gunshot wounds.

Comrade Abdullahi Adamu commended the officers for the successful operation and the tireless efforts. He urged the personnel to maintain the onslaught until all the criminals repent or relocate.

“I want to use this medium to say thank you to our gallant personnel for this feat. This is a confirmation that the increased logistics support, Vehicles and the recruitment of additional Hunters and Vigilantes by His Excellency, Alh Ahmed Usman Ododo is yielding positive fruits.”

While thanking Governor Ododo for the support which has led to this and other numerous unreported and under reported successes, Comrade Abdullahi Adamu assured the general public that the men are determined and fully motivated to continue to comb every inch of the hills and forest to make them inhabitable to criminals.

Mr. Oguche R.A also thanked the Kogi State Commissioner of Police and the Kogi State Governor for the encouragement and the necessary logistics support.

The security team recovered 1 AK47 rifle and 2 fully loaded magazines from the scene.

Recall, early this month, 6 Operational Vehicles and Motorcycles were distributed to strategic flash points outside the Lokoja Metropolis, the same with the 50 Hunters and Vigilantes recruited who were mostly recommended/nominated by Traditional rulers in those troubled suburbs because of their knowledge of the terrains.
