Operatives of the Delta State Police Command have killed four suspected kidnappers during a gun duel along Jesse - Igueleba road. 



Spokesperson of the command, DSP Bright Edafe, who disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, said the operatives recovered one AK-47 rifle with 25 rounds of live ammunition, two locally-made cut-to-size guns and cartridges. 


“Due to the reported incidences of kidnappings along Jesse axis of the State, on 12th September 2023, the State Commissioner of Police, CP.

"On 18th September 2023, during a joint patrol along Jesse - Igueleba in Edo State, the team encountered a gang of armed bandits who laid wait in the bush to attack and kidnap unsuspecting motorists


"The hoodlums who apparently sighted the police team, fired at the front tyre of the lead pickup van, thus demobilizing the vehicle. They were swiftly engaged in a gun duel by members of the police team


"The armed men eventually succumbed to the superior firepower of the policemen who pursued them into the deep forest during which four {04} suspected kidnappers were fatally wounded


“One AK47 rifle with twenty-five {25} rounds of live ammunition were recovered. The wounded suspects were taken to the hospital for treatment where they were later certified dead.”



The Commissioner of Police, CP Wale Abass, while applauding the gallantry of the men admonished them to do more and sustain the tempo in the fight against kidnapping and other vices. 



He also appealed to members of the public to provide the command with credible information that would help the police in this fight.
