Operatives of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) police command engaged in a gun battle with unidentified gunmen suspected to be kidnappers in the Bwari Area Council.

The FCT Police Public Relations Officer, SP Josephine Adeh, confirmed the incident in a statement on Monday.

The confrontation occurred on Sunday after the police received a distress call about the attack. Under the leadership of Commissioner of Police, CP Benneth C. Igweh, the operatives swiftly mobilized to the scene.

The police, in coordination with local hunters, advanced on the assailants and tactically ambushed them at Ushafa Hill near Bwari and Shishipe Hills near Mpape.

“This led to a fierce gun duel as the hoodlums were overwhelmed by the firepower of the operatives, forcing them to scamper to safety with various degrees of bullet injuries, and the victims were rescued.

“While one of the rescued victims is still in the hospital receiving medical attention, the commissioner of police, FCT, CP Benneth C. Igweh, psc, mni, reaffirms the command’s steadfast dedication to maintaining peace and security in the Territory, as search operations are ongoing to rescue other hostages who fled the scene during the shootout”, the statement added.
