Operatives of Anambra State Police Command have rescued three kidnapped victims at Okija Ihiala Local Government Area.

According to Anambra State Police Public Relations Officer DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, Police operatives from Rapid Reaponse Squad, Awkuzu acting on credible information stormed the compound of one Onyeka Aduba alias Totoritor at Umuohi Village, Okija and rescued three abducted citizens chained to building pillars by suspected insurgents.

A release signed by the PPRO said two suspects, Okika Chukwujekwu aged 31 years and Slyvester Ikwuanusi aged 55 years were arrested for interrogation.

It explained that the feat followed the confession made by the notorious gang leader, popularly known as ‘Totoritor’ who was arrested earlier and had been in police custody and was positively identified by a victim with gunshot injury before he was arrested.

The release said preliminary investigation revealed that the kidnapped victims have been kept incommunicado and chained to pillars in the compound for weeks before their rescue while efforts are ongoing to arrest the other fleeing members of the gang.

It added that the Commissioner of Police CP Aderemi Adeoye has urged the people and residents of Anambra State to disregard propaganda by outlawed groups and continue to partner with the Police and other security agencies in the State to restore peace to Anambra State as well as report suspicious persons and unusual movement they observed to the nearest Police Station or through the Command Emergency number 112 or call 07039194332 for prompt response.
