Gunmen have abducted a mobile policeman in Tike area of Mayo Belwa Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

A resident said the abducted policeman was mistaken for a rich man, who was the target of the kidnappers.

The victim is aid to be among the officers drafted to the area to tackle kidnapping, which has become rampant in the axis.

According to a source, the gunmen stormed the area on motorcycles around 7:00pm on Saturday, searching for a rich man called Idi Bage.

“The man whom the gunmen were looking for own a mansion beside Mayo Belwa-Jalingo highway. Bage is a man known for splendour as he always dresses immaculately.

“Luckily for him, he did not dress elegantly on that fateful day. Unfortunately, the MOPOL who wore an expensive flowing gown in celebration of Christmas was mistaken for the rich man,” the source stated.

Operation Farauta comprises soldiers, police and hunters. It was formed to tackle the activities of Shila boys and kidnappers in Adamawa State.

Mayo Belwa and neighboring LGAs have witnessed several activities of kidnappers.

Efforts to contact the spokesman of Adamawa State police command, DSP Sulaiman Nguroje, proved abortive as he did not pick calls.
