Osun State Commissioner of Police, Olawale Olokode, has assured that the abducted passengers along Omo/Erin-Ijesha road, Osun state will be rescued, while the kidnappers would be arrested as the police were still on their trail.
The Police boss, who disclosed this while speaking with journalists in Osogbo on Tuesday said that two persons (a man and his girlfriend) were kidnapped by some suspected gunmen on Sunday at about 6:30p.m., adding that the man was rescued by the police on Monday.
He said that the police, in collaboration with the vigilance group and hunters, had been combing the forest where the kidnappers retreated after their operation on Sunday.
He added that some of the points and hideouts of the kidnappers had been located by the team combing the forest, stressing that the kidnappers kept changing locations and were still on the run.
He, however, said some of the kidnappers’ accomplices found at some of the points located by the police had been arrested and are now helping the police in their investigations.
“Those arrested were found with mobile phones saved with numbers that the kidnappers were using to contact the police and the family of their victims.
“They are equally the people helping the kidnappers to buy food and taking it to them at their hideouts.
“Right now, I can assure you that before the end of today, we shall get the fleeing kidnappers because we had been able to get their logistics, members and accomplices.
“Right now, our men are on their trail and I can assure you, by God’s grace, we shall get them,” he said.
