The Edo State police command has assured that the police was doing everything possible to rescued two high profile Indigenes recently abducted by daredevils.

In a phone conversation with NAIJA CENTER NEWS, the Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Moses Nkombe said the force would do everything possible to rescue the victims unhurt.

In the past two weeks, reports on kidnapping had increased in Edo State. The Executive Director of Ogba zoo, Mr. Andy Ehanire was kidnapped, while three police officers were shot dead.

Similarly, two days ago, Ace musician, Mr. Osayomore Joseph was abducted on his way to his home while his wife sustained an injury to the head.

On Wednesday evening, Prof. Paul Otasowie of the Engineering Department, University of Benin was killed by gunmen in what an eye witness described as failed kidnapping attempt.

Nkombe said “We are doing everything possible. We have increased our man power on the road, and we are doing everything possible to make sure that those kidnapped are rescued unhurt and the suspect arrested.

“We have tracking devices we are using and very soon, they will be rescued.”

On whether ransom has been demanded on both abducted victims, the PRO said “Most times family hide it from the police, if they have done so, we don’t know but on our part, we are doing everything to make sure they are rescued.”

Explaining the incident that led to the death of the University Professor, the PRO alleged that his death was cult related, adding that three of the attackers had been arrested.

“The incident is cult related. There was a distress call that came to the station around 20:46hrs that there was a sporadic shooting Off Siluko road.

“They traced the lecturer to his house, and as he was highlighting from his car, they shot him and nothing was taken from him. Our men swung into action, three of the suspects were arrested and the vehicle they used have been recovered.”

On whether he was a cultist or not, Nkombe said “We cannot say he is a cultist until our investigation is concluded”.
