Suspected kidnapper killed by Oyo NSCDC in Ibadan

A suspected kidnapper was gunned down by operatives of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Oyo State at Easy Gate Farm along Abanla Ogunmakin road Ibadan, on Wednesday at about 10:30 am.

The state Commandant, Michael Adaralewa, disclosed this through the command’s Public Relations Officer, DSC Oyindamola Okuneye, on Thursday.

According to Adaralewa, the suspected kidnappers, numbering eight, gained entry to the farm to kidnap its owner of the farm who is a foreigner but met stiff resistance from the NSCDC personnel.

This led to a gun duel, resulting in one of the kidnappers being shot dead while others escaped with bullet injuries.

He recalled how the suspected kidnappers invaded the same farm on June 1, during which one of the NSCDC personnel was shot in a gun battle.

The commandant, who praised the gallantry efforts of his personnel, urged the state residents to join hands with all security operatives by giving credible information on whatever they could perceive as happening.

He also called on the residents to contact NSCDC or other security agencies if they notice anyone with bullet wounds, in order to arrest other wounded members of the kidnap gang.

“We are created to protect you, if you see something, please say something,” Adaralewa enjoined.
