 Following the charge by the Edo State acting Governor, Comr. Philip Shaibu, to security agen­cies to flush out armed gangs from the state, operatives of the Edo State Police Command have killed a kidnapper along Benin-Auchi expressway.

In a statement, Deputy Po­lice Public Relations Officer, ASP Jennifer U. Iwegbu, said the kidnapper was killed by the Police operatives at Iyuku Road by Imeke Junction, Benin-Auchi expressway, on Saturday, July 09, 2022 at about 1920hrs, during a routine patrol.

She said, “As a fallout of the recent strategic engagement of stakeholders in Edo State Security by the Acting Gover­nor, Rt. Hon Philip Shaibu, and Command CP, CP Abutu Yaro, a kidnapper was decimated at Iyuku Road by Imeke Junction, Benin-Auchi Expressway, on 09/07/2022 at about 1920hrs while operatives of the command were on routine patrol; others were wounded and took to flight.

“Subsequently, during bush combing along that axis, a corpse on black mask suspected to be one of the hoodlums was discov­ered. A locally made pistol was discovered on him.

Iwegbu noted that the Edo State Commissioner of Police, CP Abutu Yaro, while reassur­ing the general public of the com­mand’s unalloyed commitment towards ensuring a peaceful state for Edo people, called for the spirit of patriotism by avail­ing the command with credible information as such information will be speedily treated with high level.
