Abducted police ACP rescued unhurt, two suspects arrested


Abducted police ACP, Musa Rabo, an area Commander in Suleja who was abducted over the weekend has reportedly been rescued unhurt.


According to a statement by the Nigerian Police, ‘the officer was successfully rescued this evening (Sunday, October 20th) by a combined team of Police operatives from Kaduna, Niger and Zone 7 Command Headquarters Abuja, backed-up by members of the elite Special Forces of the NPF’.

Two male suspects have been arrested in connection with the incident. Investigation into the incident is ongoing. The officer was travelling in his civil dress, with his private vehicle and without escort or any special security at the time of the incident.

He was not targeted as a cop. It was purely an opportunistic crime, indiscriminately and maliciously targeted at citizens using that particular road. He was, perhaps, positionally unlucky at the time of the incident!
