Operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad have rescued a medical doctor, who was kidnapped on Sunday by unknown gunmen.
SARS Commander in Bori, Abdullahi Mohammed, told newsmen that his men swung into action immediately they learned about the incident.
Mohammed explained that the efforts of the SARS operatives paid off when they located the whereabouts of the victim and rescued him at 2.30pm on Wednesday.
He pointed out that one suspect, Baridon Fifii, was arrested during the rescue operation inside a bush several kilometers away from the place the medical doctor was abducted.
“On May 30, 2018, at 1430 hours, my team rescued a medical doctor, one Evaristus Emekwuru, who was kidnapped from Nonwa, Tai Local Government Area to Deyon in Gokana Local Government Area four days ago.
“One of the suspects known as Baridon Fifii was arrested in connection with the kidnap of the medical doctor,” a short text message from the SARS head in Bori read.
Mohammed further disclosed that no ransom was paid before the rescue of the doctor, adding that Emekwuru was also in good health when he (victim) regained his freedom.
