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

    It was gathered that the incident occurred Tuesday night while the police officer was about to enter his house in Ogidi area, Ilorin after the close of work.

    A local in the area, Jamiu Abdulganiy, said the development has thrown the community into apprehension, wondering that a police officer could be brazenly kidnapped.

    Speaking on the incident, the Kwara State Secretary of the community policing advisory committee, Shola Muse, said the development highlighted the growing insecurity in the state, adding that the security situation is getting worse and therefore urged the security agencies in the state to brace up and arrest the situation.

    The state Commissioner of Police, CP Paul Odama, confirmed the development, saying: “Yes, it’s true, but we are still on it.”

    Also, spokesman of the Command, SP Okasanmi Ajayi, in a statement on Thursday, while confirming the incident, said:

    “Kwara Command is tirelessly working towards rescuing the abducted Assistant Superintendent of Police, even as the motive of the abduction is still sketchy. The incident, as serious as it is, has not diminished the resolve of the command to protect lives/ property of the citizens.”
