By Olaolu Oladipo, Lagos
The Nigeria Police Force has claimed to have rescued a woman and her
children kidnapped on July 3, 2016 at her residence in Ayobo Area of
Lagos State.
According to a statement issued by the Force Public Relations Officer
Mr. Don Awunah issued on Monday, the feat followed a directive by the
Acting Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris who reportedly
ordered the immediate deployment of a detachment of Counter Terrorism
Unit to the area for the safe rescue of the victims.
According to the force spokesman, “It could be recalled that when the
news of the kidnap spread around the Ayobo area, some good spirited
members of the community mobilized to apprehend the hoodlums, until
the Police were contacted.
“This community collaboration with the Nigeria Police ensured that the
hoodlums were traced to the Igando waterfront, Lagos, on July 4, 2016
where the criminals abandoned their victims and fled.
“The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Idris warns those involved in
acts of kidnapping and other heinous crimes to turn a new leaf as the
Police in the new dispensation is ready to clampdown on all forms of
criminality throughout the country.”
