The Nigeria Police force has come under fire over statement that his operatives rescued kidnapped victims without paying ransom.

The Kaduna state police command reportedly said its operatives had rescued three students of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, abducted along Abuja-Kaduna highway on Monday.

The command’s public relations officer, Yakubu Sabo, announced earlier in a statement issued on Wednesday.

The statement read: “The Command wishes to state that, on the said date, August 26, at about 18:50hrs, armed men in military uniform intercepted some commuters near Masari village along Kaduna-Abuja Expressway, opened fire on the vehicles, in the process kidnapped six persons.

“Due to the prompt response of the Police and other security agents to the scene, three people were later released by the hoodlums due to intensive combing within the general area.”

Sabo said the three students, alongside the abandoned vehicles at the scene of the incident, were moved to the police station.

Contrary to the claim, that elicited a reaction from Sadiq Ango, a Twitter user, who said the police lied.

Sadiq, while responding to Bashir Ahmad said on his Twitter that it took the families of the victims 48 hours of negotiations and payment of ransom before the students were released.

 

Sadiq’s tweet (@sadiqango) reads: “Lies… It took us 48 long hours of negotiations with the kidnappers to secure the release of our sister to us, NOT the police. Ransom was paid in full as negotiated with the three families involved.

“Federal Government of Lies, Deceit, Falsehood and Death. Kidnap is a life-changing experience.
What the victims go through is unimaginable. But one Bashir is in Aso Rock, busy tweeting whatever catches his fancies because his Sisters are somehow safe. Nobody is safe really.” Follow up tweet by Deji Teye read.
