This information is found in a statement released on Wednesday in Makurdi and signed by Police Spokesperson Sewuese Anene.
A combined patrol squad of police, soldiers, and vigilantes freed three kidnap victims on Tuesday.
They were saved in Otukpa, in the Benue State local government of Ogbadibo.
This is contained in a statement signed by Police Spokesperson Sewuese Anene and issued on Wednesday in Makurdi.
The police said that the security personnel got information that a vehicle enroute Otukpa-Onitsha was attacked by suspected kidnappers who abducted some passengers.
It stated further that a joint patrol team made up of the police, military and vigilante operating within the area moved swiftly to the scene for a rescue operation.
“After an intense gun duel, the kidnappers abandoned the vehicle and took to their heels; three victims were rescued and the bus was recovered.
“While chasing the kidnappers into a nearby forest suspected to be their hideouts, they came across one Peter Ejembi, a member of the Benue State Volunteer Guard, who paid the supreme price.
“His body has been deposited at Bethel Morgue, Otukpa,” the police stated.
The state’s chief of police, Wale Abass, reportedly sent out more teams for additional operations in the region, according to the police.
He urged community members to constantly supply the security staff with information.
