Kidnap victims rescued by soldiers in Enugu

In the Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State, between Four Corner and Agbogwe Junction, the 103 Battalion (Rear) of the 82nd Division of the Nigerian Army had saved Dr. Maxwell Ayim.

In a statement released on Saturday in Enugu, Lt. Col. Jonah Unuakhalu, acting Deputy Director Army Public Relations, 82 Division, Nigerian Army, stated this.
Ayim was found on Thursday unharmed, according to Unuakhalu.
Upon receiving a distress call about the event from the police, he claims that the rescue effort was carried out by troops stationed at the Udi checkpoint.

Unuakhalu claimed that the forces encountered the kidnappers when they arrived and that, as a result of the troops’ superior fire, members of the criminal gang fled in disorder with bullet wounds into the nearby bushes.
According to the army spokeswoman, the brave troops discovered the victim after further exploiting the gang’s escape path.
“The victim was rescued by the troops. After initial medical exams, he was later reunited with his family.

The South-East area in general, as well as law-abiding and moral citizens of Enugu, are consequently urged by Joint Task Force Operation UDO KA II to continue supplying timely, credible, and accurate information.

“This will assist in ending the cycle of kidnappings and other criminal activity in the area.

“Operation UDO KA II will continue combating crime and criminality in accordance with the extant rules and regulations guiding its operations,” he declared.
