The Nigeria Police Force have intensified efforts to rescue the four landlord kidnapped by suspected gunmen in military uniform at Isheri, a border community between Lagos and Ogun states on Saturday.
LEADERSHIP gathered that a combined team of policemen drafted from the Zone 2 police command headquarters, Onikan, Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Police Command , and the Police Air wing command, Ogun State police command are involved in the operation. An authoritative source at the Zone 2 command disclosed that over 150 policemen were combing the creeks while the air wing of the force is also helping to trail the whereabouts of the victims and their abductors. The source said, “ There was serious aerial patrol by the Police Air wing Command.”. He also said that an Amoured Personal Carrier (APC ) and two patrol vehicles from Lagos and zone 2 commands were being manned by heavily armed policemen in the areas. Residents of the area are still living in fears as the kidnappers have vowed to kill the captives if NI billion ransom placed on the heads of the victims is not paid. The residents are worried that the four kidnapped landlords were still in captivity after the gunmen in military uniform stormed Isheri community and kidnapped the victims who were doing their routine exercise.
