Confirming the development, the Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Oduniyi Omotayo told DAILY POST that a combined team of Police officers have been deployed to the area to rescue the abductees.

He said:-

“The incident happened in Rafin Daji, a boundary community between Niger and the FCT. The farmers were on their farmlands working when the gunmen kidnapped them.

“Upon receipt of this information, a combined team of Police officers from various Tactical and intelligence units of the Command, Destiny Hunters, Vigilantes, and Local hunters stormed the forest, combing it aggressively.

“This is for the rescue of the victims and to bring perpetrators to book. Monitoring and surveillance of the community also continues”.
