Operatives of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps in Kaduna State have arrested two suspected kidnappers while rescuing eight kidnap victims during an operation in the state capital.
NSCDC Kaduna Commandant Babangida Dutsinma said the victims including two babies and five women were abducted on Monday morning by gunmen who posed as taxi drivers.
Dutsinma further explained that NSCDC officials, acting on intelligence, swiftly chased the kidnappers and were able to intercept their vehicles and successfully rescue the victims.
