A kidnapping suspect
Another kidnappers’ den has been discovered at Ile-Zik area of Lagos State, a few minutes away from Ikeja Along Bus Stop, along Lagos-Abeokuta express way on Thursday.
It was gathered that the kidnapper’s den which is a tunnel was discovered after a hawker managed to escape from some suspected kidnappers on Wednesday while returning home after sales at about 9:00 p.m. when she was accosted by the kidnappers.
After she escaped, she raised an alarm and residents of the area came to her rescue. She narrated her experience to them and the next morning the residents stormed the location.
Two mad-looking men, which the residents believe were the kidnappers, were found in the area. They were almost carrying out jungle justice in an attempt to burn them alive when the police arrived the scene.
After the security officials calmed the residents, they took the mad-looking men to custody. They will be interrogated, and the police assured the crowd that they would continue the investigation on the matter.
An ‘Operation Search Everything’ was declared at the location, as the crowd that had gathered began to turn the place apart looking for proofs, and structures around the scene were also brought down in few minutes.
A mad man who was passing by at the time almost became a victim of anger, as he was almost lynched. He was made to empty his bag to convince the crowd that he was truly mad.
