A man, Obinna Davidson, allegedly kidnapped in Imo State was on Friday rescued in Oba, Idemili South Local Government Area, near Onitsha, Anambra State.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, Haruna Mohammed, disclosed this  in Awka,  said Davidson was abducted by the kidnappers in his car and headed towards Onitsha before he was rescued.

He said, “At about 10:30pm we got intelligence report from Owerri in Imo State that gunmen suspected to be kidnappers abducted one Obinna Davidson with his Red Lexus car model GS 300 Registration No EHM 32 EHRH and headed towards Onitsha in Anambra State.

“Following the distress, patrol teams attached to ‘Operation Udoka’ were alerted and the hoodlums were later traced to a secluded flat located inside a bush around Oba area.

The victim was rescued unhurt and his vehicle recovered. The hoodlums escaped through the rear fence into the bush.

“Two AK47 rifles with 10 rounds of live ammunition as well as one Beretta pistol with 10 rounds of .9mm ammunition were recovered during a search conducted inside the building.”

Mohammed added that the scene had been cordoned off, while efforts were intensified to apprehend the fleeing suspects.

He said the case was being investigated while efforts were also on to apprehend the fleeing accomplices.
