The Cross River State Police Command, said it has rescued a student of Arthur Jarvis University, who was kidnapped on July 19, from the institution’s campus in Akpabuyo Local Government Area, near Calabar.

Police Public Relations Officer in the state, SP Irene Ugbo, confirmed the rescue of the victim in an interview with newsmen in Calabar.

TheFact Daily had reported that the student was kidnapped in the school premises, while coming back from her night studies. Some students, who witnessed the incident, confirmed that the female student and her friends were coming from their night reading class before she was accosted and whisked away to an undisclosed destination, while others escaped with injuries.

Ugbo, while describing the rescue as a “laudable breakthrough”, added that one suspect had been arrested by the police during the operation.

She said that the rescue followed a manhunt as ordered by the police chief in the State, adding that a crack team of officers combed the creeks of Akpabuyo and rescued the victim at about 11: 00 p.m. of Thursday, 21 July.

“She is recovering and also receiving treatment at the moment. This is a serious note of warning that we will not tolerate any form of criminality in any part of the State.

“No matter where they hide, we shall always smoke them out, no matter how long it takes,” Ugbo said.

Ugbo further disclosed that the Command was taking the fight against all kidnappers and criminals in the State to their hideouts.

“We are not going to allow any person or group to carry out any nefarious activity in any part of Cross River,” she warned.

Meanwhile, the Chancellor and Founder of the institution, Mr Arthur-Jarvis Archibong, thanked God for the safe return of his student and commended the police for a job well done.
