The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) says it has rescued an abducted Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Musa Rabo who was kidnapped over the weekend.
A post on the Twitter handle of the force @Police NG at 11:05 pm on Sunday night says, Rabo was rescued unhurt.
” Musa Rabo abducted over the weekend was today 20th October 2019 rescued unhurt.
” The officer was successfully rescued this evening by a combined team of Police operatives from Kaduna, Niger and Zone 7 Command Headquarters Abuja, backed-up by members of the elite Special Forces of the NPF.
” Two male suspects have been arrested in connection with the incident. Investigation into the incident is ongoing.
” The officer was travelling in his civil dress, with his private vehicle and without escort or any special security at the time of the incident.
” He was not targeted as a cop. It was purely an opportunistic crime, indiscriminately and maliciously targeted at citizens using that particular road. He was, perhaps, positionally unlucky at the time of the incident!”
