Soldiers begin search for DPO abducted by terrorists in Kaduna



Troops of the Nigerian Army have launched a search-and-rescue mission for a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Gyadi Gyadi, who was abducted by terrorists in Kaduna State. 

The former DPO of Pambegua Division in Kubau Local Government Area of Kaduna, was kidnapped on Monday morning, June 27, along Kaduna-Birnin Gwari Road.

The Chief Superintendent of Police was on the way to his new duty post‎ in Birnin-Gwari, when he ran into the gunmen in a community called Korna Ruwa and was whisked away to an unknown location.

Military sources on Monday night told SaharaReporters that soldiers were combing the area and would leave no stone unturned to rescue the senior police officer.

“Our guys are in the bush now looking to see maybe he can be rescued. We got a distress call that a man going to Birnin Gwari was abducted by gunmen, it was when we arrived at where his car was parked that we realised he is a senior police officer,” a top army officer told SaharaReporters.
