Gunmen attack estate, kidnap 2 housekeepers

Aaron was later released, and he threatened to deal with residents of the estate for reporting him to the police.

Kidnapping

According to Punch, three landlords were kidnapped by gunmen in military uniforms on September 1, 2016.

Also, on Monday, August 29, 2016, two landlords were kidnapped on their way to work around 11 am.

Some residents say it might be connected to a recent incident involving the arrest of a land grabber, Aaron by the officers attached to the Ojo police station.

According to reports, Aaron was later released, and he threatened to deal with residents of the estate for reporting him to the police.

A landlord in the area, who did not want his identity to be revealed, said “The gunmen have obtained a list of rich landlords in the estate. So, they came again on Monday.

“The first thing we noticed was that the female landlord, Nwaochei, was released by the gunmen. She came back home around 9.30pm. Her  husband did not disclose how much was paid as ransom. He only confirmed that they paid a ransom.

“While a part of the estate was celebrating with the family, gunshots suddenly rent the air on Ojezua Street.

“The gunmen came into an apartment on the street to abduct a landlord, but the man had fled the house. So the gunmen took away the two boys working in his house.

“I think the gunmen have informants among us. The commercial motorcycle riders and artisans are among the informants.”

A 17-year-old girl, Chizoba Maduegbunam, was recently arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly abducting a little child in the Oto-Awori.
