A suspected kidnapper has been shot by members of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), according to a spokesman on Thursday.
The shooting took place at Easy Gate Farm on Abanla Ogunmakin road in Ibadan, around 10:30 am.
The State Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Mr. Adaralewa Michael, observed that eight suspected kidnappers entered the property to kidnap the owner, who is a foreigner, in a release signed by the command’s public relations officer, Oyindamola Okuneye.
However, they were repelled “by the gallant officers of the Corps in a gun battle in which one of them was shot dead and others escaped with various degree of bullet wounds,” the statement said.
“It would be recalled that on June 1st 2022 the suspected kidnappers visited the same farm to kidnap in which one of our officers was shot during gun battle before the reprisal attack that happened yesterday September 28th 2022,” the statement further added.
