Following the information, the Command immediately mobilised its tactical team operatives from the Ibillo sector and in collaboration with vigilantes and hunters, moved to the scene.

The suspected kidnappers on sighting the operatives reportedly opened fire on them which led to a gun duel that left five of the kidnappers fatally injured.

The security operatives were, however, able to rescue one 38-years old man named Innocent who has since been reunited with his family.

Items recovered at the scene include; two locally made pistols, some fetish items, and cartridges.
