Operatives of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) on Tuesday, November 29 arrested two suspected abductors and rescued a female victim inside their car around Pedesbytrian Church, Yaba, Lagos.
In a statement released on social media, the General Manager of LASTMA Mr. Bolaji Oreagba stated that the two suspected abductors were arrested by a team of Lastma personnel from the Somolu zone while on patrol monitoring traffic around Yaba axis.
“Our officers on patrol and with the help from passersby chased and apprehended a Toyota Corolla saloon car (FST 60 RJ) after a lady at the back seat was heard shouting Kidnappers! Kidnappers!! Kidnappers after the bridge coming towards Yaba from Jibowu.
The driver with the lady at the front seat were immediately apprehended while the…woman who shouted kidnappers quickly got down and explained that immediately she joined the car from Maryland going to Apapa, a lady beside the driver collected her phone with other valuables and she shouted after noticing that they were ‘one-chance’ kidnappers”.
LASTMA says the suspects alongside the impounded Toyota Corolla car have been handed over to men of the Sabo Divisional Police Station.
