Police Rescue White Man, Recover 60 Magazines,5,000 Ammunition From Kidnappers’ Den

It was an Iraqi kind of warfare at the once serene neighbourhood of Lanre, Igando area of Lagos State, on Friday as teams of policemen from Anti-Kidnapping Squad and the Special Anti- Robbery Squad (SARS) stormed a kidnappers’ hideout to rescue a white man.

 

The successful operation was led by the officer in charge of Anti- Kidnapping Squad, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Mr Akinade Adejobi and the second in command of SARS, a Superintendent of Police (SP), Mr. Amadu Adamu. The policemen, who surrounded the building, before storming in, found the white man tied.

Also recovered from the hideout of the bandits were four AK47 rifles, fully loaded, two English pistols, 60 magazines and 5,000 ammunition. The kidnappers are suspected to have scampered on getting information that policemen were already onto them. It was gathered that in their attempt to escape, the abductors abandoned their cache of arms.

 

The gang had originally abducted a Whiteman.

 

The victim was said to have been rescued less than 24 hours after he was abducted. It was also gathered that the policemen had been tracking the kidnappers since Thursday. The search narrowed down to a building located at the Igando area of the metropolis, close to the Igando Police Station.

 

The rescue operation took off around 4pm and before 6pm, it was over. Residents of Igando, who heard the area rocking with gunshots, thought armed robbers were in operation.
