A nursing mother has been abducted after suspected kidnappers attacked Ngurore Police station in Yola South Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

The spokesman of the Adamawa State Police Command, DSP Sulaiman Nguroje, confirmed the development on Sunday.

According to Nguroje, the criminal gang attacked the station at about 2 am on Sunday, adding however that no casualty was recorded.

Nguroje said: “The suspected kidnappers targeted one Alhaji Umaru of Nasarawo B, a resident of Ngurore town in Yola South LGA. The criminals separated into two groups; one attacked the police station to divert the attention of security operatives, while the other group attacked Alhaji Umaru’s house and kidnapped his wife, Hauwa Umaru, and her daughter.

“The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Mohammed Barde, has ordered the deployment of the operational asset including Police Mobile Force, Counter Terrorism Unit, Crack Squad and Anti-Kidnapping units to Ngurore.”

Nguroje also explained that the operational units were expected to carry out confidence-boosting patrols within the hotspots in coordinated operations to rescue the kidnapped victims and apprehend the culprits.

According to the police spokesman, the commissioner assured that the command was committed to working with other patriotic stakeholders toward restoring public order in Ngurore and other parts of the state.

He added that the Head of the Police Intervention Team, SP Babagana Abubakar, was already on the ground to coordinate the police investigative operation and rescue response.

He called on citizens to go about their normal businesses in a peaceful and law-abiding manner, and report any suspicious person(s) around their neighbourhood to security agencies.
