In a recent operation, operatives of the Federal Capital Territory Police Command successfully rescued two female kidnap victims, Sarah Hassan and Erima Bobo-John, who were abducted from Kobi community in Abuja on January 31. The victims were abducted around 1 am and were being taken to Nasarawa State. The police, with the assistance of the Nigerian Army at a military checkpoint on Nyanya/Keffi Road, engaged the kidnappers in a gunfight, overpowering them and forcing them to abandon the victims. Both victims were rescued unhurt and have been reunited with their families. The operation took place following a report of the abduction by armed hoodlums. The spokesperson for the FCT Police Command, SP Josephine Adeh, confirmed the successful rescue in a statement on January 31.

This incident occurred amid rising concerns about kidnapping in the region, prompting protests by members of the Middle-Belt Youth Forum on January 17. The security situation in various parts of the country has been a subject of ongoing discussions and actions, including the arrest of 10 suspected bandits by the military. Abiodun Sanusi, a journalist with over six years of experience, reported on the details of the rescue operation.
