Lagos Police Breakthrough, Gunned Down 9 High Profile Kidnappers, Going For Kidnap Of Rich People

Aruga Joe Omokaro – Lagos

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Adegoke Fayoade made a remarkable breakthrough yesterday, when his men punctured a well organised robbery and kidnapping of some high profiled individuals in Lagos, earmarked for yesterday 4/6/24.

The SUPREME learnt that, CP Adegoke got intelligence about two weeks ago, on sone high profiled kidnappers with sophisticated weapons, promoting him to direct the Command’s tactical teams to commence work on the intelligence. They were said to have followed up closely, monitoring and were able to determine that the gang was going to strike yesterday in Ladipo area of Lagos State. Police source says, “with the benefit of this information, we were able to proactively prepare for them and more or less laid an ambush for them.

The kidnappers who were caught unawares would not give up easily as they engaged the police officers in a shoot-out. They of course bowed to the superior fire power of the police. Nine of them were neutralized while two escaped with gunshot injuries. Four AK-47 rifles, four locally-made semiautomatic pistols, nine AK47 magazines, three walkie-talkies, one POS machine and a loud speaker were recovered from them. Also recovered are their two operational vehicles: one black Toyota 4Runner and a blue Lexus RX350.”

Meanwhile, investigations are ongoing to arrest the fleeing suspects.

It was further gathered that, the Command had been on the trail of the gang for the past eight months for their numerous kidnappings of wealthy individuals in Isolo, Okota, Ejigbo and Ladipo areas of Lagos State.

*We are proud to declare that their reign of terror has effectively come to an end.

This breakthrough is in addition to several other breakthroughs we have made in recent times in identifying and apprehending gangs of kidnappers and armed robbers while planning their crimes. Many of these were not made public so as to protect the identity of members of the public that made the information available.

We urge everyone including medical practitioners to be on the lookout for anyone with gunshot injuries and promptly inform the nearest police station or call any of our emergency numbers if they come across any. We also use this medium to call on other well meaning Lagosians not to hesitate in giving us information when they suspect anything amiss around them to enable us act appropriately and swiftly. On our part, we promise to continue to prioritize their safety and security. “

Spokesman of the Command,
SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the story
