Two kidnap suspects were killed by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in Anambra State on Monday, May 22.
Parading the suspect alongside the bodies of the dead ones at the headquarters of the Anambra State Police Command, Amawbia, the State Commissioner of Police, Mr Sam Okaula said the suspects stormed the popular Lounge 24 Night Club and kidnapped the manager, one Chidi Ojukwu.
On receiving reports on the kidnap, the police team trailed the suspects to Urum area of the state where they engaged them in a gun duel, killing two while a third suspect, who was seriously wounded fled into the bush. One of the suspects said to be a special motorcyclist responsible for the collection of ransom was also arrested. The victim was rescued safely.
Mr. Okaula said some of the gang members who are at large would be arrested while information has been given on where they hid their arms.
He, therefore, warned criminals to exit the state as it would be made uncomfortable for them and their nefarious activities.
