Lagos
State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode on Thursday directed the State
Police Command to ensure prompt arrest of kidnappers who struck on
Wednesday evening in Isheri area of the State killing three security
guards.
The kidnappers were said to have also abducted the Secretary of the Isheri North Residents Association, Mr. Dayo Adekoya.
A
statement issued by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr.
Steve Ayorinde, said Governor Ambode has already directed the
Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni to move decisively and
promptly to arrest the kidnappers.
Governor
Ambode, according to the statement, specifically commiserated with the
families of the security guards that lost their lives to the unfortunate
incident, and assured that government is on top of the situation and
working with security agencies to ensure early release of the victim.
Ayorinde
said: “A while ago, the CP of Lagos Command of the Nigerian Police,
confirmed that police has commenced investigation as well as put in
place necessary rescue operation to ensure the release of the victim.
“While
the State Government commiserates with the families of the three dead
estate security guards, it will leave no stone unturned to ensure that
lives and property of residents in the State are protected.”

It would be recalled that just last week, Governor Ambode had
demonstrated his seriousness and determination to eradicate the menace
of kidnapping when he signed into law the anti-kidnapping bill recently
passed by the State House of Assembly.
The
law imposes a penalty of life imprisonment on kidnapping for ransom and
death penalty in the event of death of a kidnapped victim.
