The Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Fugar Division in Etsako Central local government area identified as Ibrahim Ishaq has been reportedly kidnapped near Ise river along the Auchi –  Ekperi-Agenebode road.

It was gathered that the police officer was travelling with his orderly, Friday evening, when they were attacked by the kidnappers.

A source close to the police said: “He was coming from Agenebode to Fugar and he passed through Ekperi Road and they were attacked. He was kidnapped but his orderly escaped and the kidnappers have made contact this morning and they are demanding N50m. The incident happened around 6:30 pm on Friday.”

As at the time of filing this report, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Edo State was yet to respond to a text message sent to him.

But it was gathered that the Commissioner of Police, Philip Ogbadu has ordered immediate deployment of men of the Anti-Kidnapping and Cyber Crime unit, men of the Tactical and Srike teams of the state Police Command to move to the area to rescue the DPO unhurt.

CSP Ishaq before his deployment some years ago, had served as DPO in Dakata Police Division in Kano State

The kidnap of the DPO is coming in the wake of continued concern about insecurity in the country with many citizens being held by kidnappers across the country.
