In a statement, Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Jennifer Iwegbu, said the kidnapper was killed by the Police operatives at Iyuku Road by Imeke Junction, Benin-Auchi expressway, on Saturday, July 9, 2022 during a routine patrol.

She said, “As a fallout of the recent strategic engagement of stakeholders in Edo State Security by the Acting Governor, Comrade Philip Shaibu, and Command CP Abutu Yaro, a kidnapper was decimated at Iyuku Road by Imeke Junction, Benin-Auchi Expressway, on Saturday, July 9, 2022 while operatives of the command were on routine patrol; others were wounded and took to flight.

“Subsequently, during bush combing along that axis, a corpse on black mask suspected to be one of the hoodlums was discovered. A locally made pistol was discovered on him.

While reassuring the general public of the command’s unalloyed commitment towards ensuring a peaceful state for Edo people, Edo Police CP called for the spirit of patriotism by availing the command with credible information as such information will be speedily treated with high level confidentiality.
