The Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) Taraba state command today (Thursday) said it rescued two abducted children in Lau Local Government Area of the State on Wednesday.

The commandant, Alhaji Aliyu Ndanusa , who disclosed this to newsmen in Jalingo said the two children were abducted from their community in Askira Uba in Borno State.

Ndanusa explained that men of the command got a hint about the evil act through intelligence and trailed the abductors to their hideouts in Lau.

As stated by him, the abductors ran away on sighting the operatives of the NSCDC, leaving the two children behind.
