The Divisional Crime Officer (DCO) of Mbala Police Station, Isuochi in Umunneochi Local Government Area of Abia State, DSP Dickson, is yet to regain his freedom four days after he was kidnapped.
The DCO was reportedly abducted in his office at Mbala on August 10, by unknown gunmen.
It was gathered that the kidnappers stormed the police station in broad daylight on the fateful day and whisked away the DCO, while the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) and the other police officers narrowly escaped being kidnap.
A source said that the DCO was still being held even after the family had paid an undisclosed amount of money as ransom.
The source said the state command had since deployed all the tactical squads led by Commander, Oracle of Police Anti kidnapping Squad and others for the rescue of the victim and arrest of his abductors.
The DCO, who hails from Enugu State, is said to have health challenges and has barely a few months to retire from service.
