Kogi: Police dislodge gunmen on Lokoja-Ajaokuta road

The Kogi Police Command said gunmen terrorizing travellers on the Lokoja-Ajaokuta road of the state have been dislodged by security operatives.

The bandits took over the road on Thursday afternoon trying to kidnap travellers.

He added that the motorists who were held up for some minutes were able to continue their journey after the clearance operation by the police.

According to him, “motorists travelling along Lokoja/Ajaokuta road were hinted by a good Samaritan that some bandits have taken over the road waiting to kidnap travellers, so they quickly moved to the closest town to avoid being kidnapped and put a call to the Police Command.

However, when the information got to Command, the State Commissioner of Police CP Bethrand Onuoha quickly dispatched Rapid Response Unit to the area.

He added that the criminals ran into to bush after seeing the police operatives.
