Man and girlfriend arrested over kidnapping

16 February 2013, 16:37

Lagos - The police in Lagos State have arrested a 28-year old man and his girlfriend for allegedly demanding N2 million ransom after  kidnapping a teenager within their neighbourhood in Ikotun.

The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Umar Manko, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday that the suspects were arrested by the Special Anti -Robbery Squad (SARS).

He said SARS operatives rescued the 14-year old victim, Daniel Olumide, who was allegedly kidnapped on Feb. 2 at Ikotun.

The man allegedly kept the victim for two days in his girlfriend's apartment.

The police said the arrests followed a tip-off by a resident within the neighbourhood, who told the police that he saw the victim walking with the suspect before he was declared missing.

In a related development, SARS in Lagos State  on Sunday shot dead eight suspected armed robbers in a gun-battle, Manko said.

He said the police recovered a Toyota Camry, marked EPE 737AT, during SARS  one-week operation.

Manko said the vehicle was recovered within 24 hours after it was snatched from its owner and added that the police would not relent in fighting criminals and protecting lives and property.

He said the police acted on a tip-off and recovered the car from the hoodlums while they were operating between Sango and Ifo, Ogun, along the Lagos-Abeokuta expressway.
