In another development, operatives led by the Divisional Police Officer of Agbarho Division,  CSP Samuel Ogwa, successfully rescued a male kidnap victim and reunited him with his family.

According to reports, the victim was kidnapped from his residence in Warri and the kidnappers were heading towards Agbarho when they were intercepted by the operatives responding to a distress call.

Read below;

“On 10/10/2022, the DPO Agbarho Division received a distress call that one man (name withheld) was kidnapped at his residence in Warri alongside his highlander SUV(Reg. No. withheld), and that the hoodlums were advancing towards Agbarho, the DPO CSP Samuel Ogwa swiftly mobilized and led operatives who positioned strategically on the road. As they were monitoring movement of vehicles, they sighted the highlander vehicle as described by the distress caller, but the driver unsurprisingly made a u-turn in a bid to escape. They were given a hot chase by the team led by the DPO and the hoodlums on noticing the determination of the team, abandoned the vehicle and escaped into a nearby bush.

“The Victim was rescued unhurt and has since been reunited with his family. Efforts are ongoing to arrest the fleeing suspects.
