According to him, the rescue was achieved in partnership with local vigilante groups, who acting on credible information, moved into the forest, which forced the kidnappers to abandon the victims and escape into the bush.

He explained that the kidnapping was suspected to have been masterminded by the loyalists of a notorious bandit, the late Isah Danwasa, a native of Zaria.
