How Lagos Police killed 20 kidnappers while rescuing six Igbonla students


The Lagos State Police Command has revealed 20 kidnappers were killed, during the process of rescuing the six abducted students of Igbonla-Epe Model College.

Fatai Owoseni, the State Commissioner of Police, stated this on Friday while briefing journalists on the rescue operation.

The boys were released 64 days after they were kidnapped from their school premises.

Owoseni however regretted that one civilian volunteer died during the rescue process, while eight policemen and four other civilian volunteers sustained injuries.

“We have responsible security agencies that don’t want to sacrifice the lives of those children. Our objective was to do everything possible to get these children alive, unhurt and that’s exactly what has happened,” he said.

He added that a suspect was arrested, for trying to swindle the parents of the students by demanding ransom for the boys’ release.

Owoseni praised the South-West Governors, “for demonstrating a clear commitment to combat crime in the region.”
