Confirming the deadly encounter which led to the rescue of the renowned traditional ruler who was abducted two months ago, Kano State Police Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Haruna Abdullahi said in the course of the operations   the traditional ruler was rescued unhurt and that arrest was made while arms and ammunitions were recovered.

According to him,  “Gangar Ruwa, the scene of the deadly encounter was cordon-off while efforts had  been intensified to  arrest the fleeing suspects adding that  the operation  puff adder operatives and the rescued traditional ruler had already left Kano for Abuja for   further investigations.”

Blueprint also learnt on good authority that the operatives of the operation puff adder had stormed the suspected kidnappers hide-out at Gangar Ruwa quarters at exactly 8pm Monday and started shooting to register their presence, a scenario that forced residents of the area to scamper for safety for fear of not knowing what would be the consequences.

He said, “the issue of kidnapping had been a disturbing phenomenon to everybody in this country which menace must be tackled for peace to prevail everywhere. The Kano State Police Command and the operatives of the operation puff adder must be commended for a good job well-done. We need gallant officers like them to face the grueling battle”.

This is a task we must shoulder and it is our responsibility. the issue of abduction is worrisome and we must do everything within our power to support the government”.
