Gunmen Kidnap Residential Estate Secretary, Kill 3 Security Guards in Lagos
Barely a week after the Lagos State governor signed the Lagos State anti-kidnapping bill into a law, Channels Television reports that daredevil gunmen have kidnapped the Secretary of Isheri North Estate, GRA, Lagos State, Mr Dayo Adekoya.
He was abducted by eleven gunmen who stormed the estate at about 10PM on Wednesday.
They reportedly opened fire, shooting into the air for about four hours before taking their victim away at around 1 am.
Eyewitness reports say three estate security men were killed as they attempted to prevent the gunmen from escaping with the victim.
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Fatai Owoseni, also confirmed the incident to Channels Television
This will be the second time in six months that a kidnap incident will be occurring in the estate.
Recall that on September 17 2016, four landlords were kidnapped and were released five days after.
