The two siblings lecturers, Adamu Chonoko and Umar Chonoko, kidnapped separately five days ago in Kaduna have regained their freedom after escaping from their captors on Sunday.
The two lecturer brothers were kidnapped in Kaduna last week Tuesday by unknown gunmen suspected to be kidnappers in two separate operations that may have been planned together, but police information revealed on Sunday that they have escaped.
A statement from Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Yakubu Sabo said, “today 17/11/2019, at about 11:51am, the command received information from the family of the two kidnapped lecturers Adamu Chonoko from Ahmadu Bello University and Umar Chonoko from Kaduna Polytechnic that, the duo have managed to escaped from the den of their kidnappers.
“The Commissioner of Police CP Ali Aji Janga while rejoicing with the families and friends of the victims, assures the families and members of the public that, the perpetrators of this crime will be apprehended and be brought to face justice.
“The Police will not relent on the ongoing investigation to track down the perpetrators of this and other similar criminal incidents with a view to arrest and prosecute them in accordance with the laws of the Land.
“The command enjoins the good people of Kaduna state to continue to support the command in the current battle against criminality in the state.”
