The Taraba Police Order on Monday thwarted an endeavor by obscure shooters to snatch a Chinese public in Gidin Dorowa territory of Wukari neighborhood government region of the state. Police foil snatching of Chinese public in Taraba
DSP David Misal, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the order who revealed this in Jalingo on Tuesday said the equipped men had impeded the Wukari-Jalingo parkway on Monday night and were going to seize a Chinese public on travel yet were repulsed by the police.
Misal said that one of the suspected kidnappers was killed in the bloody gun battle that ensued between the criminals and the police while others escaped with gun wounds.
“The Taraba State Police Command successfully killed one of the kidnapping gang members terrorising Wukari Jalingo road and recovered one AK47 with two magazines loaded with 60 rounds of ammunition.
“The incident occurred exactly at Gindin Dorowa, Wukari LGA when the kidnappers numbering about eight blocked the highway and attempted to kidnap a Chinese national. Consequently, they engaged the policemen in a shoot-out and the superior firepower of our policemen led to the killing of one of the kidnappers while others escaped with gun wounds,” the statement read in part.
Yawa reports that the Wukari-Jalingo highway has become a death trap for travelers who either fall victim to tribal militia or armed groups who block the road to rob or kidnap people.
It very well may be reviewed that as of late, Mr. Danlami Shamaki the owner of Victors Extensive Optional School Jalingo was killed out and about in a bombed capturing endeavor while a few other honest explorers have lost their lives to the exercises of hoodlums on Jalingo Wukari street in the previous a half year.
