Lagos - Gunmen suspected to be militants have abducted seven people at a farm in Epe area of Lagos, reports Vanguard.

The gunmen numbering 20 and who were in military uniforms stormed the Kodjo Farm, located at Igbodu, Epe area on Sunday and abducted seven people.

One of the victims is Kakaja Joseph, a 65-year old man, four poultry workers of Kodjo Farm and two travellers, reports National Mirror

The guard and four poultry workers were abducted after the kidnappers attacked Kodjo Farm.

But the two travellers were taken after the militants embarked on a second operation, which witnessed them blocking a transit road.

On Monday, the kidnappers attempted to abduct students of Molajoye Community High School on the assembly ground, but policemen attached to Rapid Response Squad (RRS), Area N Police Command, Navy and Army foiled the abduction.

On November 15, gunmen, numbering over 40, had invaded a farm settlement in Epe, also located on Igbodu-Isiwo Road, Lagos and kidnapped four farmers.
