Tochukwu Ikenga, the Anambra police spokesperson, said that the command will do everything in its power to bring the perpetrators to justice after the attack.
Anambra State Police Command, under the command of CP Echeng, will “leave no stone unturned” until the accused abductors are rescued and returned to their families safely, he said.
As a result of his message to me, I dialled the sarkin and pleaded with him to report the incident at the nearest police station. Preliminary inquiry will be possible because the accused abductors established touch with the families, according to him.
When it comes to rescuing and investigating the victims, the police will be able to plan accordingly.
