A recent abduction which took place at Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos State, has sent chills to the minds of residents.
A Twitter user @girllikehelen who shared the story online on Wednesday 25th October said the man was forced out of a black Toyota Corolla which he was driving on Medical Road in the area.
“The owner of this car was allegedly kidnapped on Medical Road in Ikeja this morning.
According to my source, the gunmen accosted the owner of the car and asked him to come down from the vehicle; he refused. They pulled out their guns, he refused to alight from the car.
Then they pulled out a cutlass. He got out of the car and they whisked him away in their vehicle. The gunmen were six in number and they had masks on.”
Another user with handle @RealMabel99 also confirmed the incident.
“They later took him, after using a cutlass to cut his leg. I was there. People couldn’t do anything because the men were armed and wore masks. This Lagos is no longer safe. I’m still in shock till now, she said.
Reacting to the report, the spokesperson of the Lagos state police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said
“I am aware of the situation. It was as narrated on social media. We have commenced investigation; we have leads. But we are not saying much about it so we don’t jeopardise investigation.
