According to the Adamawa Police Command, it has detained six suspects in connection with the kidnapping of a nursing mother from the Ngurore Police Station in Yola-South.
According to the Nigerian news agency NAN, the event happened on October 10 and the people who were trapped inside were rescued.
During a Thursday visit to Yola by the Adamawa Police Community Relations Committee (PCRC), the State’s Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mohammed Barde, made the announcement.
When asked about abduction, he stated the leadership was prepared to deal with anything illegal in the state.
For the sake of peace and security throughout the state’s 21 LGAs, Barde requested that the committee’s work be supported by the provision of valuable information to the police.
He reassured them by saying that the information they provided would be kept private.
Rather than encourage divisions inside the PCRC, the commissioner suggested that they work together to fulfill their responsibilities.
State Chairman of PCRC, Mr. Olu Adegoke, promised Barde of his full support and cooperation in addressing the state’s security problems in his speech.
This is to greet you and to offer our assistance. We have done so in the past and will do so in the future, he added.
According to him, the committee was solidly unified and would do all in its power to see that the state’s police force was a success.
