Po­lice syn­er­gize to cap­ture S/Leone high com­mis­sioner’s ab­duc­tors

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Maryam Ah­madu-Suka, Kaduna

The Kaduna State Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice, Adamu Ibrahim has said that the Fed­eral Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory (FCT) and the Kaduna State Po­lice com­mands are syn­er­giz­ing to cap­ture the ab­duc­tors of the Deputy High Com­mis­sioner of Sierra Leone to Nige­ria, Ma­jor Nel­son Williams.

Williams was ab­ducted on July 1, 2016 by un­known gun­men along Kaduna-Abuja road when he was on his way to the Armed Forces Com­mand and Staff Col­lege (AFCSC) Jaji, Kaduna State, for the grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony of Se­nior Course 38/2016, to wit­ness the Gen­eral grad­u­a­tion of stu­dents from Sierra Leone.

Speak­ing at the dis­tri­bu­tion of food items for wid­ows of fallen po­lice­men in Kaduna yes­ter­day, the CP said although the mat­ter was re­ported by the Sierra Leone em­bassy in Abuja, the Kaduna Po­lice Com­mand was also comb­ing the bush in case the sus­pects try to cross over. “We heard of the news which oc­curred around the FCT axis, and we have joined hands to see how to come to the res­cue should the peo­ple pass through the bush to come to Kaduna axis,” he said.

Com­ment­ing on the in­ter­ven­tion for wid­ows, the CP said, “When we were in Abia state, my­self and my wife, were able to help some wid­ows over there, so she asked me if I plan to as­sist some of them here and that is why we are dis­tribut­ing these items to them. Un­for­tu­nately, due to time con­straint, we were only able to raise 50 bags of rice and two cows for the wid­ows and or­phans to go and cel­e­brate in the com­mand.”
