Kidnappers Abduct Two Teenagers In Lagos, Dump Victims Same Day In Ogun

Suspected kidnappers who abducted two teenagers; Chindalu Umadi (17 years) and Udeba David (16 years) in the Ojo Local Government Area of Lagos State have reportedly dumped them at at Oru Ijebu riverside, Ogun State.

According to information obtained by NIGERIACRIME, both incidents occurred the same day.

Confirming the development, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Omolola Odutola, said the boys, who were abducted on September 3 at around 8:20 a.m were found at approximately 3:30 pm.

She stated that the boys were recovered by officers of the command while on patrol.

Her words, “Two unknown individuals abducted them into a Toyota saloon car, and the victims have no recollection of what happened during their captivity until they were discovered abandoned near a riverside in Oru Ijebu.”

Speaking further, the PPRO said the teenagers were immediately taken to the police station by the patrol from Oru Ijebu.

It was said that the Divisional Police Officer, CSP Mathew Ediae, in an interview with the boys, learnt that the teenagers were “on their way to play football when they were forcibly taken.”

Odutola informed that the police had made efforts to contact the parents of the victims.

“The parents, who had been searching for their children throughout the day, received a call from the DPO informing them that the teenagers have been safely located and are in the custody of the police,” she said, adding that the teenagers would be reunited with their families after proper identification.

Meanwhile, a fire outbreak, on Sunday, wreaked havoc at the World Assembly headquarters, along Ajase-Ipo Road, in Ilorin.

Kwara State Fire Service said it received an urgent call reporting the fire outbreak from one Mr Akani, according to the spokesman, Hassan Adekunle.

“Upon arrival at the scene, firefighters found that the devastating inferno had already consumed the auditorium of the church due to a late call.

“Despite the significant damage caused by the fire, the firemen managed to contain the inferno and prevented it from spreading further,” Hassan added.

The spokesman noted that the materials used for the building’s construction were not fire-retardant, including aluminum roofing sheets and plywood for the ceiling, which contributed to the rapid spread of the fire before the fire service’s arrival.

As a result, not only the auditorium but also three out of the six offices were affected by the fire.

During subsequent investigation into the cause of the outbreak, it was suspected to be a result of power surge.

Among those involved in the rescue operation were notable figures such as Alhaji AbdulRazaq Jiddah, the Senior Special Assistant to the Kwara State Governor on Special Duties, and Prince Falade John Olumuyiwa, the Director of the Kwara State Fire Service.

Various security agencies, including the Nigeria Police, Civil Defense Corps and the Federal Fire Service provided support.
