Nasarawa State Police Command says it has dispersed suspected kidnappers at Sardauna forest in Toto Local Government Area, rescuing 30 victims in the process.

The Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Ramhan Nansel said in a statement that the kidnappers, who were trailed to their enclave, dispersed in disarray deep into the forest on sighting the operatives.

Mr Nansel said the operation was carried out in collaboration with operatives of Miyetti Allah Vigilante Group after receiving intelligence reports about the “unwholesome” practices of the kidnappers in the area.

He said the Commissioner of Police has ordered “continuous combing” of the Forest, and applauded the “courageous effort” of the police operatives and Miyetti Allah Vigilante Group for a “job well done”.

He said the Commissioner also assured members of the public that the operation will be sustained in order to rid the general area of Criminals.
