Kidnappers abduct Chief Imam’s son, two others in Ogun-Lagos border
One Abdulazeez Sanni, son of the Chief Imam of Ode Omi, a boundary community between Lagos and Ogun has been kidnapped by some suspected kidnappers.
Newsmen learnt that Sanni who recently returned from Saudi Arabia where he studied Arabic was abducted after the assailants shot at two other sons of the Imam.
The gunmen also abducted two brothers, Jelili and Bamidele Adams and they stole a speedboat with which they escaped with their victims.
Jelili, a tailor, was reportedly sewing clothes for his customers for the Eid-el-Kabir celebration when the assailants struck.
Condemning the act, the Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, said his administration was considering death penalty for kidnappers in the state.
Abiodun disclosed this when some Islamic faithfuls paid him an Eid-el-Kabir visit in his Iperu country home.
He informed that the judiciary in Ogun State is working towards enacting a bill to that effect, even as he made case for community policing.
Abiodun added that the police were already on the trail of the kidnappers; assuring that the victims would be rescued unhurt.
