Mukan while briefing newsmen at the State Police Headquarters, Moscow road Port-Harcourt on Thursday, disclosed that the victim was  rescued by operatives of the Anti-Kidnap Unit from a deep forest in Etche Local Government Area of the State.


He said Ajayi was rescued along with another kidnap victim by the police team.


Ajayi was kidnapped by gunmen who were dressed in military uniform at her residence in Rumuokurusi,

Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the State at the weekend.


Days after her kidnap, the president of the Nigerian Bar Association(NBA), Olumide Akpata,

stepped in as he set up a task force on her case.


In a series of tweets, he said that her sister and mother were attacked when

she tried to save the 25-year-old from the claws of the armed men.


“Last night, I received reports that Paulette Bisola Ajayi, a lawyer & daughter of Ngozi Ajayi (also a lawyer)

was abducted by at least 4 gunmen dressed in combat fatigues & dark t-shirts in front of her home in Rumukurushi PH,

as she was waiting for her gate to be opened”.



“Her mother and others who tried to prevent her from being taken away were brutalised

and shot at by these men who eventually dragged Bisola out of her car

and took her away in their own car…a white Toyota Venza”.
