All 26 Abducted FRSC Operatives Finally Regain Freedom


The executive Governor of Nasarawa State, Engr. Abdullahi Sule on Tuesday disclosed that the remaining operatives of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) who were allegedly kidnapped by suspected bandits in the State had been freed. The 26 officers were traveling for training at the FRSC’s Academy at Udi in Enugu State when they were abducted by suspected bandits.

Sule made this disclosure when he received the Market Enterprise Development Advisor, Fatima Buhari, in Lafia. Three out of the 26 operatives recently kidnapped along Maraban-Udege in the state had earlier been rescued.

Sule commended the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Bola Longe, other security agencies, and all those who worked hard to ensure the freedom of the remaining operatives of the FRSC. I am happy to announce that all the 26 members of the FRSC that were recently kidnapped were released on Monday.

“I want to thank all the security agencies and all those who worked very hard to ensure that we achieved that feat. “I want to thank them for all the efforts they are making in order to ensure that Nasarawa State remains safe,’’ he said.
