The Nigeria Police Force has rescued Bisola Ajayi who was abducted days ago in Port Harcourt from the kidnappers' den.
The Nation reports that Rivers police spokesperson, Nnamdi Omoni, confirmed the release of the lawyer. As at the time of writing this report, further details of the rescue have not been given.
Recall that Bisola's sister cried out for help in a video after unknown gunmen carried out the horrible act. She said the armed men shot at them as they drove her sister off in a white Venza.
Wide calls for her rescue also trended online as a Twitter handle known as Portharcourt Specials asked people with relevant information to reach out to them via the platform. It was revealed that the kidnapping took place in Rumukwurushi area of the city.
Days after her kidnap, the president of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Olumide Akpata, stepped in as he set up a task force on her case.
In a series of tweets, he said her sister and mother were attacked when they tried to save the 25-year-old from the claws of the armed men. He also condemned the spate of kidnapping in Rivers state.
"The increasing spate of such incidents is indeed disheartening. I have spoken to Bisola's mother to assure her of our support and assistance towards the rescue of her daughter."
Meanwhile, it was earlier reported how gunmen kidnapped a former commissioner of higher education in Nasarawa state, Clement Uhembe.
It was gathered that Bola Longe, the commissioner of police in Nasarawa state on Wednesday, October 7, confirmed the sad development.
Longe said the former commissioner was abducted on Tuesday evening, October 6, at his residence in the Akunza Migili area of the state and was taken to an unknown destination.
