The Police Command in Kogi has stormed a kidnappers den and rescued a man abducted on April 25 at PYN junction on Ajaokuta-Lokoja road.

The command spokesman, DSP William Aya, said in a statement issued in Lokoja on Monday, that two AK-47 rifles and 29 rounds of live ammunition were recovered.

According to him, the man was abducted by four gunmen at about 3:30pm on April 25, and forced into the bush by the gunmen.

“On receiving the report, a team of policemen led by Ajaokuta Divisional Police Officer, CSP Shola Night immediately embarked on a search and rescue operation.
