How Police, Hunters  Rescue 40 Kidnapped Victims In Taraba 

The Police Command in Taraba, says its men, in collaboration with local hunters have rescued 40 kidnapped victims in Yorro Local Government Area of the state.

Mr  David Iloyanomon, the Commissioner of Police in the state said the success was achieved due to  strategic  use  of the local hunters, who were familiar with the terrain.

The CP explained  that the kidnappers’ den was  located atop  the Gongomaliki mountain, from where the kidnappers  looked out for  security operatives from  afar, then launched  attacks on the security.

“We deployed another strategy of using the local hunters and vigilante, who  dislodged them, neutralised some and rescued 40 victims, while police operatives at strategic locations arrested 10 suspects, who were fleeing the mountain,” he said.

Iloyanomon  noted that the rescued hostages were taken to the police clinic in Jalingo  for  examination and treatment, after they regained freedom.

He said the victims  were kidnapped from Dilla, Lanko, and Gampu communities in Yorro like local government area, and Dekko and Kotsensi communities of Monkin B ward in Zing local government area.

While parading the rescued victims at a news briefing, the CP explained that one of the rescued hostages had an eye plucked out by the kidnappers.

He also paraded 10 suspected kidnappers who were arrested by police operatives,  while allegedly  fleeing from the mountain. Iloyanomon said the police would enhance the collaboration with Local hunters and vigilantes to guarantee safety of residents.
