Officers of the State Vigilante Group neutralised eleven bandits, arrested others and release three victims who were abducted in Kogi community.
It was gathered that security operatives acting on intelligence, nabbed an officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) Inspector Abdullahi Saidu who alongside a friend allegedly supplies the criminals with weapons and information to undertake their heinous crimes.
The successful operation by the security operatives was carried out in series working with credible intelligence.
It has also been reported that five of the kidnappers were arrested, including the civil defense operative and are in the custody of the Department of State Security for further investigations.
Reacting the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Muhammed Onogwu noted that such security success by the operatives is a welcome development and a proof that the security architecture of Kogi State was strong and solid enough to quash all forms of criminal vices
In the same vein, security agencies are on the trail of kidnappers who were reported to have carried out attack on certain individuals in Kabba.
The State Government said it is in touch with security agencies and that the Governor already gave a marching order that those kidnapped must be rescued and the perpetrators apprehended.
