Lagos - Two suspected kidnappers would have been lynched in the Odoyanta, Ijebu Ode area of Ogun State on Sunday for allegedly kidnapping a fish farmer, Punch reports.

The suspects who wielded cutlasses and charms, had told their victim that they were policemen from the Igbeba Police Division, adding that he should “cooperate” with them.
