Reaching a crossroad, some hoodlums accosted them in their private vehicle. They were not on duty. They went on a private visit and as they were coming back, they were accosted and attacked. Immediately, they whisked the DPO into the bush while the orderly, Sergeant Aliu, managed to escape and he reported the matter to Agenebode police division where the DPO mobilised operatives and they are currently on a rescue operation.

By God’s grace, the Commissioner is doing everything possible to ensure that he is rescued unhurt”he said
