A well-coordinated search effort led by the Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, has led to the successful rescue of Olu Falae, the former Secretary to the Government of the Fedration and one time presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party, who was abducted at his farm on Monday in Akure, Ondo state.
While Falae is said to be in good health, little is known of his abductors, who are yet to be apprehended.
According to a statement by the police spokesperson, Olabisi Kolawole, the police boss supervised both aerial and land operations.
“The IGP moved in some Technical teams to reinforce the efforts of Ondo State Police Command. The team started the operation in the early hours of the aforementioned date, combed every nook and cranny of Ondo state till success was achieved in Owo,” the statement read.
Arase warned kidnappers and other criminals that the police with assistance from other security agencies is determined to make sure they do not have free rein, even as he vowed that the police will not rest until Falae’s kidnappers are arrested and made to face the law.
