Kidnapped MD, son, released in Lagos


The Police in Lagos , confirmed the release of Managing Director of Smartpoly Products Ltd and Tokslordmart Ltd, Mr Martins Adams, who was abducted Sunday, alongside his seven year-old son.

Adams who was in the company of his wife and son, as gathered, were returning from an outing at about 5.30pm when they were nabbed by some gunmen. The gunmen reportedly followed the family into the building which also serves as the polythene manufacturing companies.

They were said to have tied the gatekeeper and Mrs. Tokunbo Adams  before whisking away Adams and his seven year-old son , Ireoluwa, to an unknown destination.

Vanguard reliably gathered that the abductors  had demanded for a ransom of over N20 million for the release of the MD and his son.

However ,  a source at the Lagos State Police Command Thursday,  disclosed that Adams  and his son were released Wednesday evening but could not state whether any ransom was paid.

It was also gathered that  the earlier denial of the kidnap by some members of staff of the polythene manufacturing companies followed stern warning from the abductors not to give any information to the Police and journalists.
