“The command was flabbergasted when the news of the abduction of the victims broke on March 22, in spite of the tight security arrangements emplaced throughout the state.

“This prompted the Commissioner of Police to give a marching order to the Command’s anti-kidnapping operatives which he personally supervised.

“That eventually forced the kidnappers to abandon the victims when they could not withstand the intense pressure placed on them. They fled for their lives.

“Effort is still on-going to arrest the fleeing suspects.

He added that the CP Bagega advised all criminals irrespective of nomenclature to relocate from Kwara adding that it was not a safe place for criminals.
