The Lagos State Police command on Tuesday, said they have rescued three Fouani brothers whisked away in their boat by gunmen in the nation’s commercial hub.

Five victims in total- three Lebanese, the boat captain and his assistant, were rescued in the Orugbo Iddo Area in the Epe area of Lagos.

The police spokesperson in the state, Benjamin Hundeyin, explained that the victims were rescued last night in Orugbo Iddo Area of Epe, Lagos.

“Our Marine Police with the support of the Nigerian Navy brought them to shore. Thereafter, our tactical team in the area took them home on Banana Island in the early hours of today,” he said.

Hundeyin, however, added that the police were not aware if any ransom was paid, and that no suspect had been apprehended in connection with the kidnap.

The three brothers identified as Abbas Fouani, Youssef Fouani, and Amtal Fouani, were reportedly abducted around 6 pm on June 14, in Lagos.
