The firm, in a statement signed by its Public Relations Officer (PRO), Hassan Illugbami Igo, yesterday, said all security agencies in the area had been mobilised to track down the kidnappers and free those in their custody as well as make their abductors face the full wrath of the law.
He said: “The victims would be rescued alive and reunited with their families. Yes, it’s true that some of our workers were abducted on Wednesday by unknown gunmen, but the management is already on top of the situation.
“We have involved the area commander, the DSS and together they have initiated all the necessary moves. We have equally reached out to families of those that were abducted and assured them of their safety.
“This is just to let the public and their families know that all hands are on deck to get the captives released and united with families.”
