The Ondo State Police Command has ordered the deployment of Special squads to Akunnu Akoko area of the state to rescue some kidnapped victims and arrest their abductors.
A statement from the command’s PPRO Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya made this known.
There was report yesterday of an eighteen passenger bus attacked by kidnappers during which the driver was killed and all the passengers abducted leaving only a little girl behind.
A detachment from the Area commander with the support of the military and local security was said to have moved into the affected area for possible rescue immediately the incident occurred.
Personnel drawn from various tactical units led by the Special Anti Kidnapping Squad have also been briefed and deployed to this area for the rescue of victims and possible arrest of suspects.
The command has however enjoined the people of the state and the general motoring public not to panic insisting the incident was an isolated case which does not determine the security status of the state.
