A suspected kidnappers’ den has been discovered at Ile-Zik on the Lagos/Abeokuta Expressway – an area very close to Ikeja, the Lagos state capital.
This is coming barely a few days after two suspected kidnappers were set ablaze when residents of Obadeyi-Ijaiye end of the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway discovered a suspected kidnappers’ den in the area.
It is understood that security operatives while combing the hideout found human parts concealed in some sachets.
Scores of tunnels were also seen in the area which is adjacent to a perimeter fence of the Murtala Muhammed international airport.
Based on reports, a hawker who fell into the hands of the gang raised the alarm after managing to escape.
Three suspects have been arrested, while a sharp knife was found on one of the suspects said to have been posing as a mad man.
The suspects are currently being interrogated at Isokoko police station.
It was gathered that there are at least eight patrol vans of the police at the location, while a huge crowd converged on the place, making it difficult for free movement.
