Kidnappers face Lagos-Ibadan expressway, abduct three travelers

* Security personnel comb nearby bush for perpetrators

The Police in Ogun State have confirmed the abduction of three persons along the ever-busy Lagos-Ibadan expressway by suspected kidnappers.

It happened precisely at Ishara-Remo axis in Ogun State.

About one week ago, a driver was killed and four passengers abducted at the Onigari axis.

Reports say in the Saturday operation, about 10  bandits dressed in military uniform emerged from the bush and started shooting sporadically, directing the shots at vehicles and the occupants. 

Some were able to escape, including a Nollywood actress Bimpe Akintunde who reported the incident on her Instagram page.

Meanwhile, staff members of a company who went to attend a ceremony and were returning home were not so lucky as one of the three vehicles conveying them broke down and the other two vehicles waited for the one that broke down. 

While repairs were being carried out on the faulty one, the kidnappers suddenly emerged from a nearby bush and abducted three of the occupants of the vehicles. 

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Ogun State command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the abduction of three persons. 

He, however, said the command is on the trail of the bandits, with the anti-kidnapping unit, vigilantes and hunters, combing the bush to get the perpetrators and rescue the victims.
