Police rescue kidnapped Briton in Lagos

By Ifeanyi Okolie

The Briton who was kidnapped last Tuesday, July 16, few minutes after he landed the Muritala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos, by gunmen has been rescued by policemen attached to the  Lagos State Police Command.

Vanguard gathered that a combined team of operatives from the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, and their counterpart from the Special Intelligence Bureau, SIB, stormed an uncompleted two storey building at Okota Isolo area of Lagos State, rescuing the British national and arresting a suspect.

Police sources told Vanguard that the kidnappers demanded a ransom of one million dollars before the Briton could be released, but the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Umar Manko, ordered a clamp down on the kidnap gang.
