NAF Special Forces Rescue 26 Kidnap Victims In Kaduna

Nigerian Air Force NAF Special Forces rescued 26 kidnapped victims while on a fighting patrol along Birnin Gwari-Kaduna Road.

NAF spokesman, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet in a statement, said that the rescue operation occurred when the Forces came across five abandoned vehicles near Anguwar Yako, an indication of forced removal or evacuation and likely kidnap scene.

Commodore Gabkwet stated that acting on instincts, the Forces began exploiting the general scene of the abduction and extended for about three kilometres radius well into the bushes while clearing the general area.

On interrogation, the victims who were traveling from Birnin Gwari to various locations including Kaduna, Minna and Kano, revealed that while enroute, a large number of bandits in three groups suddenly appeared from the bushes from 3 different directions along the route and surrounded their vehicles.
