Operatives of Imo State Police Command have rescued a two-year-old boy allegedly kidnapped by some unknown gunmen and hidden in a bag in Ngor Okpala area of the state.

The rescue effort was coordinated by the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Ngor Okpala police headquarters, CSP Ishaya Pam.

Our correspondent gathered that the boy, identified as Favour, was going to school at St John’s Anglican Church on Monday when he was whisked away by some gunmen who took him to an unknown destination.

However, the kidnappers were confronted by some youths at Ohekelem village who informed the police.

Police Public Relations Officer, SP Orlando Ikeokwu, who confirmed the story, said that the case was reported to the station by the child’s grandparents.

According to him, Chinenye Anyanwu and his wife, Patience, who hail from Lorji in Mbaise, had reported that their grandson was kidnapped on his way to school.

“But they had their luck run out when some youths of Ohekelem suspected what they were carrying in a sack.

“When confronted, they abandoned the bag and ran into the bush,” he said.

He added that the child was recovered along with a locally made pistol without a cartridge.

The youths were said to have handed the boy over to the traditional ruler, Eze E. Oke of Ohekelem autonomous community who thereafter contacted the police.

He said that the case has been transferred to the anti-kidnapping unit while efforts are on to track the fleeing gunmen.
