Rivers Police Command said it has rescued three Lebanese who were abducted at a construction site in Andoni Local Government of Rivers on June 8.

The command Spokesman, Nnamdi Omoni, a Deputy Superintendent (DSP) confirmed the rescue in a statement in Port Harcourt on Tuesday.

“The three Lebanese abducted on June 8 about 7.40am at a construction site in Andoni have been rescued unhurt.

“The victims were rescued as a result of intense pressure mounted on them by the police and strategic role played by Chairman of Andoni Local Government Area (LGA), Lawrence Paul.

“The victims are Tony Stephan, 63, Chandy Lahoud and Emile Skaff.

“Meanwhile, efforts have been intensified to arrest and bring to justice the perpetrators of the crime,” Omoni said.

Omoni added that the rescued workers had been debriefed and were currently receiving medical attention in an undisclosed hospital.

The spokesman, however, did not provide details of how the workers were rescued or where they were kept before their rescue.

According to him, the kidnappers are yet to be arrested but assured that efforts have been intensified to ensure that the perpetrators are arrested and brought to justice.

The trio who are contractors handling the “unity Road” linking the riverine Andoni/ Opobo/ Nkoro local Government areas of the state to another neighbouring Ogoni axis by land were kidnapped at the boundary between Andoni Kuana LGA, early this month. (The Nation)
