The ordeal began when Zhang fell victim to a brazen abduction orchestrated by a gang of six armed assailants at the Cherish Guest House in Eyenkorin, on the outskirts of Ilorin, the capital city of Kwara State. Having lodged at the guest house for an extended period while conducting business, Zhang’s peaceful stay was abruptly shattered by the ruthless actions of his captors.

The Kwara State Police Command officially confirmed the successful rescue operation in a statement released by the state’s Police Public Relations Officer, Ejire-Adeyemi Toun, on Wednesday.
