The Nigerian Police Force have confirmed the abduction of three children in Kogi State.

The Kogi State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP William Ovye Aya, confirmed this in a statement sent to LAGOS HERALD on Friday evening.

LAGOS HERALD had earlier reported that unidentified gunmen stormed Kaduna Estate in Ajaokuta Steel Township Complex, under Ajaokuta Local Government Area of Kogi State on Wednesday night to abduct their victims.

The kidnapers, LAGOS HERALD gathered from a family source, demanded N100m to release their victims.

Aya in the statement hinted that, the Kogi State Commissioner of Police CP Edward Ogbuka has deployed operatives of Police Mobile Force, CTU, Quick Response Unit, in collaboration with the local hunters to trail the kidnappers with a view to rescuing the children and bringing the perpetrators to book.

It could be recalled that, three police officers and five vigilantes were killed recently in Jida Bassa, under Ajaokuta Local Government when gunmen laid an ambush on them.
