Musa Rabo, the Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of Suleja abducted over the weekend by gunmen along Abuja- Kaduna road has been rescued by the police.
Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba said the officer was successfully rescued on Sunday evening 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.
Mba said 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!”, Mba said in a statement.
