A policewoman that was abducted two weeks ago, Esther Njoku, after gunmen attacked the Isiala Mbano divisional police headquarters in Imo State has been released.
It was reported that Njoku was released on Tuesday after police authorities raised concerns about her whereabouts.
A police source that spoke with Punch, noted that the police officer was dumped in front of the divisional police headquarters where she was kidnapped.
According to the source, the gunmen who carried the cop in a vehicle drove off after dropping her.
The source said. “The constable, Esther Njoku, who was abducted after Isiala Mbano divisional police headquarters was attacked has been freed. She was freed on Tuesday night. It is very likely that those who brought her were her kidnappers.”
“She was dropped in front of the station. They instilled fear in the young cop’s mind. They told her to be very careful. We are happy that she came back alive. The Command was very concerned about her safety and we are very pleased that she has been freed.”
The development was confirmed by the spokesperson of the command, Orlando Ikeokwu.
According to him, the manhunt for those who attacked the police formation and kidnapped the female cop continues.
