Police neutralise two unknown gunmen in Ogun


The police in Ogun State on Monday neutralised two unknown gunmen suspected to be kidnappers.

The State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alamutu, said the two were neutralized when detectives from Owode Egba division, in collaboration with the local hunters, engaged the kidnappers in a gun duel, at Fere Village, Owode-Egba, Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of the state.

Alamutu disclosed that the police had set out to foil a kidnap attempt of one Mr Busari Azeez.

According to him, the armed kidnappers, who were about six in number, suddenly emerged from the bush “and forcefully halted the victim’s car at gunpoint.”

Quoting the victim, Alamutu explained that “the kidnappers opened his car door with intent to whisk him away, but he summoned courage by reversing his car with a high speed to flee the scene.”

He was said to have jumped out of his car and ran into a nearby bush.

“Consequently, detectives from Owode-Egba division and local hunters combed the bush for hours and eventually engaged the kidnappers and were able to neutralize two amongst them,” he stated.

The police boss added that the lifeless body of the kidnappers were deposited at OOUTH Sagamu morgue.

“Efforts are on top gear to arrest the fleeing members of the gang,” he assured.
