Meanwhile, the Nigeria Police Force has appealed for more support and collaborations to tackle insecurity in Enugu State.


This comes as operatives of the Enugu police command foiled a kidnap attempt and rescued 12 victims which it said was made possible with the help of timely information and collaboration with local residents.



The appeal was contained in a statement issued by the spokesman for the state police command, DSP Daniel Ndukwe on Thursday night.


Ndukwe said on September 21, 2022, the operatives of the command attached to Unity Division, responded to a distress call at 7.10 pm.


He said some suspected kidnappers had blocked the road between Ekwegbe-Agu and Neke-Uno communities respectively; in Enugu East and Igbo-Etiti local government areas, along Enugu/Opi/Nsukka Highway. However, the police foiled the attempt by the unidentified hoodlums to kidnap some road users after a gun duel.



“The operatives thereafter rescued two male victims that the criminals were on the verge of kidnapping, and also recovered their vehicles,” he said.
