Ten persons have been rescued by the Nigeria Police Force in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja after they were kidnapped at gunpoint by unknown gunmen in Darka village, Kuje Area Council of the FCT.

The FCT Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Anjugurin Manzah, made this known in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja.

The Spokesperson who gave the names of the victims as Fanus Emmanuel, Babangida Emmanuel, Akimmi Dauda, Japheth Kwasu, Dorcas Shuaibu, Kemuche IK, Hamza Yunusa, Umar Godiri, Ismaila Yusuf and Abubakar Gomo, said eight of them were rescued on Nov. 19, while the remaining two were rescued on Nov. 20 in Toto and Karu, Nasarawa State.

Manzah noted that the rescue was made possible by a joint operation by the Police Mobile Force Operatives of the command’s Special Anti-Kidnapping Squad, DSS, Nigerian Army and NSCDC.

According to him, the stronghold of the assailants who specialized in raiding remote villages at night and robbing the villagers of cash and other valuables and kidnapping was destroyed during the operation.

He added that an operative of the NSCDC, ASC Anumudu Uche, who took ill, died during the operation. He recalled that the FCT Commissioner of Police, Muhammadu Mustafa, had reassured residents and affected villages of the command’s massive deployment to forestall a recurrence.

He said concerted efforts were in place to arrest the dislodged hoodlums.
