Lagos Police foiled kidnap attempt on family of five

A kidnap attempt on a family of five was foiled by the Lagos State Police Command last weekend. Nine gunmen arrived the Ijon community in Ayobo Ipaja in a speed boat and stormed the home of one Oluseun Oguyemi, and attempted to kidnap the man, his wife and three children.

According to Daily Trust, the kidnap attempt was foiled by the police and the suspects subsequently arrested.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni, who visited the community on Monday, July 3, said the police engaged the kidnappers in a gun battle and rescued the wife and children after the husband escaped. 
"The kidnappers came in a boat but as they were escaping with their victims the police engaged them in a gun duel for close to four hours and the kidnappers were subdued by the police," Owoseni said.
