The Police in Taraba State have revealed how they utilized local hunters to rescue 40 people who had been kidnapped from various communities in the state.

The victims, who were kidnapped from Dilla, Lanko, and Gampu communities in Yorro Local Government Area, as well as Dekko and Kotsensi communities of Monkin B ward in Zing Local Government Area, were found atop Gongomaliki mountain in Yorro Local Government Area.

Commissioner of Police in Taraba State, Mr. David Iloyanomon, explained that the kidnappers had previously made the mountain inaccessible for security operatives by using it as a base to launch attacks from a distance.

However, with the assistance of local hunters who were familiar with the terrain, the police were able to overcome this challenge.

“We deployed another strategy of using the local hunters and vigilantes, who dislodged them, neutralized some, and rescued 40 victims, while police operatives at strategic locations arrested 10 suspects, who were fleeing the mountain,” Iloyanomon stated.

The rescued hostages were taken to the police clinic in Jalingo for examination and treatment after their release. Unfortunately, one victim had his eye plucked out by the kidnappers, while another with a gunshot wound was still receiving treatment in the hospital.

The Police Commissioner paraded 10 suspected kidnappers who were arrested while allegedly attempting to flee from the mountain. He also emphasized the commitment of the Taraba Command to collaborate with local hunters and vigilantes to ensure the safety of residents.
