Police Operatives serving in the Enugu State Command’s Central Police Station (CPS) Enugu on April 9, 2024, at about 7:30 p.m., rescued a female abducted victim (names withheld) and arrested her alleged abductors, one Ejike Okorie “m”, aged 26, and Christopher Kindness “m”, aged 25, both of Ameke Ngwo, Enugu North LGA.

An angry mob had earlier intercepted the suspects before the police swift intervention, beat them up, and set ablaze their criminal operational minibus at the P-and-T bus stop, Okpara Avenue, after an alarm was raised over the victim’s abduction.

A preliminary investigation has shown that the suspects confessed to the crime. They stated how they and others at large have been perpetrating the criminal acts of “one-chance” robbery, abduction, and fraudulently obtaining money and other belongings from unsuspecting victims within Enugu metropolis.

The suspects will be arraigned in court and prosecuted once investigations are concluded.

The Commissioner of Police, *CP Kanayo Uzuegbu, psc (+)*, has commended the Police Operatives for their quick intervention, thereby preventing the angry mob from murdering the suspects in the name of jungle justice. He, however, urges citizens to always adhere to the laws by arresting and handing criminal suspects over to the Police, for necessary investigation and prosecution, instead of resorting to self-help in the form of the criminal act of jungle justice.
