Military officer kidnapped in Lagos


Dare-devil kidnappers have reportedly abducted a lieutenant in the Nigerian Army in Abule Ado area of FESTAC town, Lagos state in the evening of Monday, February 20.

This is despite the death sentence for kidnapping signed into law by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode recently.

The lieutenant simply identified as Diya was said to have led a team of soldiers to patrol the FESTAC area when heavily armed men attacked them.

The abduction of Diya was said to have caused serious tension in FESTAC town as military officers and members of the Oodua Peoples’ Congress (OPC) commenced a search-and-rescue effort.

The Nigerian Tribune reports that angry soldiers engaged in shooting at 7th Avenue in FESTAC town.

The shooting was on at the time of this report as a resident was quoted as saying: “The operation is ongoing now at Abule Ado and FESTAC town simultaneously.

“The army officer was actually abducted on Saturday and what happened today is that the soldiers reinforced and invaded the base of the militants.

“For more than two hours, there have been heavy shootings from the soldiers. It started from the 6th Avenue and it is now spreading to the 7th Avenue.”

The report said the public relations officer of the Lagos state police command, Dolapo Badmus, could not be reached for official reaction as calls to her phone were not taken.
