Nigeria Police, Abia State Command, On Wednesday warned state inhabitants about the new on-road operations of shady kidnappers.
This moment, in a carefully worded report given by SP Geoffrey Ogbonna, the Abia Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) to newsmen in Umuahia, the state capital, the State Police Command disclosed that kidnappers resorted to flagging down luxury cars along the roads.
The statement said, “They (Kidnappers) posed as one desiring a lift or in need of assistance to attract sympathy. In the light of the above, motorists especially those using flashy cars are enjoined to always wind up their window glasses, make use of their inner mirrors and lock up their vehicle doors while in a traffic jam to prevent unwanted boarding and avoid stopping at lonely places or for unknown persons.
“Always be security conscious as the person you want to offer lift may be a criminal,” the command said.
