Police: How we rescued three abducted Obasanjo Farm’s workers

The Nigeria Police Force says its investigation shows that Boko Haram, Ansaru and other terror groups are getting support from some Nigerians.

The Nigerian Police, Ogun Command, says it has rescued three workers of the former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s Farm, from their kidnappers’ den, three days after they were abducted.

The Police Spokesperson, DSP, Abimbola Oyeyemi, made this known to newsmen in Abeokuta, on Friday evening.

The farm’s workers were kidnapped on Wednesday evening at Seseri Village while returning from work.

The farm is located in the Kobape area in the Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of the state.

Oyeyemi told newsmen on Friday that the release followed “a serious pressure mounted on the kidnappers”.

He said that the anti-kidnapping operatives had been on the trail of the abductors.

According to him, the squad had continued combing bushes around the area since the incident happened.

“Yes, we mounted a lot of pressures on the kidnappers.

“Since yesterday (Thursday) our anti-kidnapping operatives have been in the bush searching for them.

“They were able to trace them to the bush behind the Day Waterman College, along the Kobape Road.

“This evening, they released them (victims) unhurt without any ransom,” he said.

On whether there was any arrest, Oyeyemi said “not yet, but we are very sure that we will make arrests soon”.
