A businessman and his son were yesterday rescued from a gang of suspected kidnappers by soldiers attached to the 302 Artillery Regiment, Onitsha, Anambra State.
The gunmen trailed their victims to a filling station on Obodoukwu Road, Onitsha, and forced them into a vehicle, but the emergence of soldiers unsettled them.
Sources said the hoodlums abandoned their victims and their operational vehicle and fled.
It was the manner in which the gunmen fled that attracted the soldiers, who were not aware of what was going on.
Assistant Director Public Relations, 82 Division, Enugu, Lt. Col. H.A. Gambo said: “The gang blocked their victims’ vehicle with a Four Runner Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) ACAP filling station on Obodoukwu Road in Onitsha. But on sighting soldiers, who were on patrol, took to their heels.
“In view of this ugly development, the 82 Division of the Nigerian Army hereby advise the public to be wary, alert and report any unusual and suspicious trailing to security agencies.”
