The Nigerian Police Command has rescued Reverend Nicodemus Ude of the Nigeria Reformed Church in Edufu-Egbu, Ishieke of Ebonyi Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, on Sunday, April 23.

The cleric was kidnapped and eventually released by his captives following a distress call to members of the public by his assistant who was with him at the time of the incident.

Upon being notified about the abduction, the Commissioner of Police in Ebonyi State, Faleye Olaleye, mobilized his tactical teams and the divisional police officer of Ebonyi Division to condone and barricade marked-out areas.

The kidnappers were then intercepted along Ndofia, Ishieke, and Edupfu Egbu, Ishieke where they abandoned the victim and took to their heels while exchanging gunshots with the police to pave way for their escape.

They were overpowered by the superior firepower of the police which led to one of them being neutralized and the arrest of two principal suspects.

Items recovered include two AK-47 and one LAR rifle, as well as two vehicles including that of the victim.
