Police rescue abducted NYSC members

08 July 2013, 11:01

Port Harcourt - The Rivers police command said on Sunday in Port Harcourt it had rescued three members of the National Youth Service Corps who were abducted on  June 29.

Angela Agabe, the command’s Public Relations Officer, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) the corps members were freed on July 6 at Abua town in Rivers.

NAN recalls that two male and one female corps members were seized by gunmen in the Abua/Odual local government area of Rivers while boarding a speed boat at a waterfront.

Agabe said men of the command had arrested the ring leader of the kidnap gang at Abua on July 6.

"The ring leader then led the anti-kidnap unit of the command to the kidnapped corps members, who were freed unharmed,’’ she said.

The police spokesperson said no ransom was paid to members of the gang, and assured that the corps members were in good condition.

'The suspect is with the anti-kidnap unit of the command and investigation is on to arrest other members of the gang,'' she said.
