Following the charge by the Edo State acting Governor, Comr. Philip Shaibu, to security agencies to flush out armed gangs from the state, officers of the State Police Command have killed a kidnapper along Benin-Auchi Expressway.

In a statement on Sunday, Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Jennifer Iwegbu, said the kidnapper was killed by the police officers at Iyuku Road by Imeke Junction, Benin-Auchi Expressway, on Saturday, at about 19:20hrs, during a routine patrol.

The statement read, “As a fallout of the recent strategic engagement of stakeholders in Edo State Security by the Acting Governor, Rt. Hon Philip Shaibu, and Command CP, CP Abutu Yaro, a kidnapper was decimated at Iyuku Road by Imeke Junction, Benin-Auchi Expressway, on 09/07/2022, at about 1920hrs, while operatives of the command were on routine patrol; others were wounded and took to flight.

“Subsequently, during bush combing along that axis, a corpse on black mask, suspected to be one of the hoodlums, was discovered. A locally made pistol was discovered on him.”

Iwegbu noted that the Commissioner of Police, while reassuring the general public of the command’s unalloyed commitment towards ensuring a peaceful state for Edo people, called for the spirit of patriotism by availing the command with credible information as such information would be speedily treated with high level confidentiality.
