An investigation headed by the Divisional Crime Officer Eastern is looking into an alleged abduction case involving a 9-year -old child.
The victim is admitted at the Wainibokasi Hospital as he sustained minor scratches from the alleged incident which occurred this morning.
The victim claims he was abducted from outside his home early this morning by three men and forced into a waiting van where two others were waiting.
His hands and feet were allegedly tied inside the van but he still managed to escape from the five by jumping out of the moving van a few meters away from his home.
A thorough investigation will be conducted to verify the claims of abduction and again we must stress that people must not speculate or create unnecessary panic on unsubstantiated information that is yet to be verified by investigators.
Police will comment on a later stage.
