The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim K. Idris, has deployed Special Police Forces as a response to the kidnapping of two German Archaeologists, working in collaboration with the National Commission for Museum and Monuments on the relics of NOK Culture in Nigeria in   an excavation site located at Janjala village in Kagarko Local Government Area of Kaduna State, on a search and rescue mission.

The Special Forces comprises of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT), the Technical Intelligence Unit (TIU), the Anti Kidnapping Unit, the Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU), the Police Mobile Force, Police Surveillance Helicopters and Special Investigation Team on kidnapping and terrorism cases under the command of the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Department of Operations.

A statement issued by the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Jimoh O. Moshood, stated that the team was already on the ground working in synergy with the Kaduna State Police Command and the indigenes of towns and surrounding villages where these Archaeologists were kidnapped. 

“Though the two German Archaeologists had Police Officers attached to them for their protection at the NOK Archaeology Research Project Centre, they did not go with the Policemen to the excavation site where they were kidnapped. Two locals in the company of the Germans were killed during the kidnap attack.

“The Special Forces and Police Investigators deployed are in contact with the colleagues of the victims and have provided additional security for their safety.
