Troops Rescue Five Kidnapped Victims In Kwara

During search and rescue operations at Olapade/Olayinka village in the Ifelodun Local Government Area of Kwara State, troops of the 22 Armoured Brigade at Forward Operating Base (FOB), Patigi, rescued five kidnapped victims.

New Telegraph reports that the victims who regained their freedom were four girls and a kid.

According to a statement released on Thursday by Stephen Nwankwo, Acting Assistant Director of Army Public Relations, 22 Armoured Brigade, the victims were abducted on May 15 and freed after vigilantes and locals reported the incident with intelligence, which prompted the military to take action.

The rescued individuals were then formally turned over to Mr Shonibare, Chairman of the Ifelodun Local Government Council, during a brief ceremony by Brigadier General OF Williams, Commander of 22 Brigade.


Williams, who was speaking at the event, gave Shonibare and the people of Kwara State the assurance that the Army would not give up on clearing the state of criminals, bandits, and kidnappers.

In keeping with the Chief of Army Staff’s Command Philosophy, he emphasised the brigade’s determination to keep doing its best and urged the public to offer pertinent and timely information to aid the military and security services in responding to conducting joint operations.
