Six suspected kidnappers have been apprehended by the Nigeria Police at Shogunle and Ladipo area of Agege Motor Road in Lagos state on Monday afternoon April 20.
According to an eye witness, one of the Lagos Waste Management (LAWMA) road workers was about to be pushed inside the pit by the suspected kidnappers when she shouted and raised an alarm.
The cry for help from the street sweeper attracted residents of the area and area boys who came to her rescue. One of the suspected ritualists on sighting them attempted to flee but was given a hot chase by the area boys and was apprehended.
The eye witness narrated that the police officers at Ikeja Area F and Shogunle Police Station were immediately alerted to rescue the woman and arrested four men beneath the walk-way pit. He added that Airforce uniforms officers from PWD were also at the scene.
