“The anti-kidnapping squad’s overwhelming firepower resulted in the deaths of two suspects, while the remaining offenders fled with injuries, leaving their guns behind.

“The victims later identified as one Nigerian and three Indian nationals, were safely rescued unharmed and reunited with their families.”

Alamutu stated that the hostages, one Nigerian and three Indians, were safely liberated and reunited with their family.

He urged the public to report individuals displaying gunshot wounds under reasonable suspicions adding that a rapid response team has been deployed to enhance security along the Sagamu-Benin road.
