Armed kidnappers have ambushed a Police team conveying suspects arrested over the abduction of three people by gunmen at Ode Omi in Ogun Waterside, on the last Sallah day.
The kidnappers laid the ambush between Abigi and J-Four, in an attempt to rescue their arrested colleagues, being conveyed by the Police team to the Police Command Headquarters in Abeokuta.
During the shooting by the Police team to escape from the ambush on Wednesday, some of the attackers were injured and escaped with bullet wounds.
Spokesman of the Ogun State Police Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, says two of the arrested kidnappers being conveyed by the Police team were injured during the exchange of gunfire.
Oyeyemi adds that one of the attackers who was fatally injured was arrested.
He says that the Police team captured one pump action gun and three expended cartridges from the kidnappers at the scene of the ambush.
The State Police Command has asked members of the public, and hospitals in the state, to report anybody seen with gunshot injury to the Police Station in their area.
Earlier, four Policemen had been injured during the Police raid on the hideout of the kidnappers when those abducted were rescued.
