Nigerian Troops Rescue Kidnap Victims in Birnin Gwari Forest

Three kidnap victims have been liberated in the Birnin Gwari area of Kaduna state by the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 1 Division Nigerian Army Maj Gen Taoreed Lagbaja.

Gen Lagbaja was accompanied by a team of operational commanders and operatives on an operational and inspection tour in Kaduna state on Thursday August 25, 2022.

The GOC and his team rescued the victims from a group of armed kidnappers in Manini village, along Pole Wire-Birnin Gwari road, Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna state. 

The Kidnappers had abducted the victims and were taking off, when they were confronted by the GOC’s team. The hot exchange of fire that followed subdued the kidnappers, compelling them to scamper in disarray with bullet wounds into nearby forest, abandoning their victims.

The rescued victims, comprising two males and an elderly woman have been conveyed to Kaduna, where they are currently receiving medical attention.
