An Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Abdulmumini Yusuf, serving at the Area Command in Ilorin,  has reportedly been kidnapped by suspected gunmen.

The state Commissioner of Police, CP Paul Odama, confirmed the development to newsmen on Thursday in Ilorin.

“Yes, it’s true, but we are still on it,” Odama said.

Spokesman of the command, SP Okasanmi Ajayi, in a statement, said the command was working to rescue the officer.

Ayayi said the motive of the abduction was still sketchy.

“The incident, as serious as it is, has not diminished the resolve of the command to protect lives and property of the citizens,” Ajayi said.

The incident occurred Tuesday night while the police officer was about to enter his house in Ogidi area, Ilorin.

A resident of Ogidi community, Jamiu Abdulganiy, said the development has thrown the community into apprehension, wondering why the officer could be kidnapped.
