Nigeria Police

The Nigeria Police has rescued Musa Rabo, an Assistant Commissioner of Police, who was abducted along Barde-Jos road by gunmen on Saturday.

The unknown gunmen who abducted him demanded for N50million ransom from the police for his freedom.

Rabo was however rescued on Sunday by a combined team of police operatives from Kaduna, Niger, and Zone 7 Headquarters, Abuja.

Two suspects were also arrested in connection with his abduction and investigation is ongoing, DCP Frank Mba, the spokesman of the Nigeria Police said in Abuja.

“Rabo was traveling in his civil dress in his private car and without escort or any security at the time of the incident. He was not targeted as a cop, it was purely an opportunistic crime maliciously targeted at citizens using that particular road,” the police spokesman said.

The abducted police officer is the Suleja Area Commander in Niger State.
