Gunmen in military uniforms raided some communities in Isheri, a border community between Lagos and Ogun states and abducted 3 landlords having their routine physical exercise, their trainer and some farmers last Saturday.
Kennedy Ucheagwu, Dr. Omololu Bello, Fidelis Esang and trainer Olalere Olawale, as well as Toyosi Aboderin, Ogechi Maku, Toju Amorighoye, and six-month-old Funniyi Tayo Lawal were freed by their abductors in the wee hours of yesterday.
Although the gunmen had allegedly demanded N1.2 billion for the freedom of the victims, it was learnt that they eventually collected N16m ransom. It was learnt that the DSS have used the simcard used in contacting relatives for ransom, to track the perpetrators.
The name, pictures and other vital information of the leader of the gang was revealed. He was said to be a young man with affluence as he allegedly owns a huge mansion with several exotic cars.
