Police Deny Kidnapping of 10 Officers in Kogi

The Kogi State Commissioner of Police, Edward Egbuka, has debunked news making the rounds that 10 police officers were allegedly kidnapped while returning from election duties in Osun State.

He said the police officers had been accounted for by the command, confirming that the convoy of the officers was actually attacked by the bandits on Sunday but none of them was kidnapped.

He added that when the said police officers were attacked all of them escaped into the bush to avoid being kidnapped.

Egbuka stated further that when the dust settled down, all the 10 officers alleged to have been kidnapped returned from their hideout and rejoined their colleagues in Nasarawa State.
