Lagos - One of the four landlords kidnapped by gunmen in the Isheri North area of Lagos State has escaped from his captors, Punch reports.
It was gathered that the escapee, who arrived at home on Tuesday, however, refused to discuss his ordeal with anyone.
A source told our correspondent that one of the men escaped on Tuesday.
He said, “He escaped from their midst because no ransom was paid. “He is scared and has kept to himself. The police have maintained visible presence in the community, but it is not certain they know where the kidnappers are.”
Another member of the community said some money was paid, adding that the victim arrived at the estate around 5am in a boat.
The kidnappers, who abducted four landlords around Lekki Gardens Estate, in the Isheri North area of Lagos State, have demanded N300m each to release their victims according to News24.
The abductors were said to have called the family members of their victims on Sunday to make the demand, threatening to harm the landlords if the demand was not met.
