An agent of Nicaragua's National Police was tortured and incinerated by violent groups, according to the Nicaraguan Police Sunday. In a press release, the Nicaraguan National Police informed and repudiated the acts and confirmed the killing of Gabriel Vado Ruiz, an agent kidnapped by opposition groups.
Gabriel Vado was reportedly kidnapped on July 14, while he was traveling to Jinotepe, in the south region of the country, to meet with his family. According to the release, the officer was forcibly taken and brought to Monimbo, where he was presumably tortured to death and then burnt.
In another case, 26-year-old national police officer Rodrigo Alfredo Barrios Flores was kidnapped on July 12 and brought to Monimbo where he too was tortured. Flores managed to scaped his captives two days later and was rescued by members of the police force a day after that, local media outlet El 19 digital, said.
These incidents took place within the framework of alleged protests, by sectors of the Nicaraguan Opposition, demanding the resignation of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega.
