The Edo State Police Command has said its operatives yesterday killed six kidnap suspects along the Benin-Lagos Bypass.


In a statement issued by the command explained that police operatives were on investigation activities around the area when they noticed the suspects believed to have been part of a notorious gang terrorizing the Benin-Lagos Expressway.


It said the team of operatives, on sighting the suspected kidnappers who in the process of kidnapping passengers of an 18-seater bus en route to the eastern part of the country from Lagos, engaged them in a gun duel, injuring six of the suspects who were afterwards arrested and taken to the hospital, but they were reportedly confirmed dead by the medical practitioner on duty.


It noted that other members of the gang allegedly fled in different directions with various degrees of bullet injuries during the gun battle, while one pump action was recovered from the scene.


Meanwhile, all the passengers on board were reportedly rescued unhurt, and asked to continue their journey.
