Abule-Taylor area of Ojokoro on General/Ahmadiyya axis on Lagos-Abeokuta expressway was thrown into pandemonium on Friday, 29 July, 2022 when luck ran against some suspected kidnappers as they were apprehended by eagle eye passers-by who were alerted by cries of the victims, reports thegazellenews.com
The incident which occurred on Friday 29, 2022, at around 11am, led to heavy traffic on the road as passers-by, commuters and drivers gathered to witness what happened.
Witnesses said the suspected kidnappers, four in number, were inside a space-bus, Sienna, with plate number AKD912DX, coming from Sango, Toll-gate, en-route Abule-egba. Their car was hit from behind by a Toyota sports car, which was trying to make a U-turn to the other side, heading towards Ijaiye, Meiran road.
Immediately, the Sienna driver came down to check his car and challenged the Toyota driver, who bashed him. He called the attention of his colleagues in the car.
The suspected kidnapped victims in the car started screaming for help as soon as the suspects opened the door.
People around the area quickly jumped to scene to rescue the victims. When they opened the Sienna, they discovered that the suspected kidnappers are four in number, including the driver.
The number of victims rescued was not disclosed, but an amateur video captured one of the victims rescued, a woman.
The suspected kidnappers were thoroughly beaten by mobs around before the arrival of the police officers from Ebenezer Police, Agbado, Ojokoro division; who took them away to their station for interrogation.
