Kidnappers Den Discovered In Lagos, 2 Suspects Set Ablaze
A kidnapper den has been discovered around a canal at Obadeyi bus stop at Ijaiye section of the Lagos Abeokuta expressway on the outskirt of Lagos metropolis.
The discovery followed an alarm raised by a female staff of the Lagos State Waste Management Agency, after hearing a distress call of a woman from the canal.
One of the suspected kidnappers who fled from the canal was caught by a crowd of people who laid a siege to the canal, and was set ablaze.
Another suspected kidnappers attempting to escape from the canal who was also caught by the crowd revealed that there were two others in the canal.
It took several hours to dig into the den where the suspects had hidden their victims; about two persons were rescued and taken to the hospital, as they appeared unconscious.
Policemen who arrived at the scene fired gunshot into the air to disperse the crowd and took him away before being lynched.
An abandoned house near the canal was also reportedly used as a hideout by the suspects.
