Officers of the Delta State police command, on Thursday, rescued a lady from suspected kidnappers/ritualists in Asaba.
The lady was said to be returning from Ogbegonogo market when she boarded their tricycle. Two other gang members later joined her from both sides, leaving her in the middle.
Trouble, however, started when the rider refused to stop at the victim’s destination, forcing her to raise an alarm that attracted some policemen who gave them a hot chase and eventually rescued the girl and arrested the suspects.
An eyewitness said one of them in a bid to disappear threw a ring suspected to be magic ring in his mouth and attempted to vanish but the Police diffused the charm. Irate youths who gathered at the scene made efforts to go on jungle justice but the police prevented them.
