SP Okasanmi Ajayi, the command’s spokesman, in a statement, also said the command was working to rescue the officer.

Ayayi said the motive of the abduction was still sketchy.

“The incident, as serious as it is, has not diminished the resolve of the command to protect the lives and property of the citizens,”.

A resident of the Ogidi community, Jamiu Abdulganiy, said the development has thrown the community into apprehension, wondering why the officer could be kidnapped.
