Police have foiled a kidnap attempt in Kaduna State on Monday and recovered a locally-made pistol and one cartridge.
“Police operatives at Asikolaye in Rigasa area of Igabi Local Government Area intercepted a three-man syndicate who was about to launch an attack on a person at about 6 a.m. on Monday.
“They engaged the suspects, but one of them threw away one locally-made pistol with one cartridge before they fled,’’ police spokesman in Kaduna State, ASP Mansir Hassan, said on Tuesday.
He told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the suspects escaped arrest even after a hot chase by the police operatives.
He assured that the fleeing suspects would still be arrested.
Hassan commended Kaduna State residents for giving timely and useful information to the police in the effort to rid the state of all forms of criminality. (NAN)
