The statement read;

“On sighting the troops, the kidnappers tried to engage the troops in a gun battle but were defeated due to troops’ firepower.

“This resulted in the killing of one of the kidnapper while others escaped into the forest with varying degrees of gunshot wounds.”

Items recovered from the scene of the incident included N350,770, one cutlass, 11/2 sachet of tramadol hydrochloride (100mg), and one itel black phone.
