UNDERGROUND KIDNAPPERS’ DEN: Seven Suspects Nabbed By Lagos Police

The police in Lagos have arrested seven suspected ritualists following the discovery of an underground kidnappers’ den at Obadeyi in Ijaye area of the state.


The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Fatai Owoseni, told newsmen at the scene on Tuesday evening that the dungeon was discovered by joint efforts of security agents and members of the public.

According to Owoseni, the place was discovered after a highway sweeper with the Lagos State Waste Management Agency (LAWMA) raised an alarm when she heard the voice of a woman calling for help from the canal.

He said that two of those caught were set ablaze by the mob before the arrival of the police at the scene.

Owoseni said that detectives would be on ground on Wednesday with more sniffer dogs and other security gadgets to ascertain more facts concerning the incident.

“In the process, people moved in there to help and also noticed that some persons who had some charms like gourd in their mouths tried to escape and that made the crowd to suspect something unusual.

“For now about seven persons, who are suspected to be using those buildings as base for rituals, have been arrested.

“We will continue to give it a touch of professionalism and scientific approach by deploying sniffer dogs that can also penetrate into the canal to see whether we can get materials to be of evidential value,” Owoseni said.

According to an eyewitness who pleaded anonymity, two of the kidnappers had come out of the canal in an attempt to escape but they were overpowered by the angry mob.

Mr Fatai Ajibola, an eyewitness, said that some members of Oodua Peoples’ Congress also went into the dungeon to continue with the search and recovered shoes, clothes and other female items.

A resident, who identified himself simply as Kunle, said the discovery of the den came as a surprise to most members of the community.

“Most of us in the estate pass through the bridge on daily basis without observing such a thing under the bridge; only God knows how many people that have been killed by the ritual killers in the dungeon.” he said.

Reason Goodluck Jonathan hasn’t been arrested, Presidency

​The presidency has finally reacted to the question by some Nigerians on whether former president, Goodluck Jonathan will be arrested by the EFCC saying it was not the duty of the anti-graft agency and not the presidency.

There has been questions about whether the former presidency was culpable based on the alleged misappropriation of fund meant for the purchase of arms by the former national security adviser, Sambo Dasuki.

Dasuki who has been in detention has said that that Jonathan was aware of every financial engagement he participated in.

The former president also said that he did not believe Dasuki stole $2.2 billion as arms were bought during his administration.

The Punch reports that the vice president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo who spoke in Houston, Texas in a meeting with Nigerians in the US said the EFCC had been empowered to carry out its duty without interference from the federal government.

“Answering a question from the Internet on when former President Jonathan would be arrested, Osinanjo pointed out that the Buhari administration was not in the business of arresting people anyhow.

“He said all the Buhari administration did was to empower the security agencies and the anti-corruption agencies to do their jobs, without the administration trying to teleguide (monitor) them.”

Accroding to Mr. Laolu Akande who is the spokesperson of the vice president, Osinbajo said the fight against corruption was not an ethnic thing.

“Corruption is not an ethnic thing, there is an equal representation in the stealing as no one operates with his or her ethnic group alone, the culprits are in every case seen so far, united by greed to steal and not by ethnic or religious interest.”
The vice president noted that as much as $15 billion was stolen from the national treasury and that no responsible government would ignore that because it did not want to offend some people.
On the issue of the arrested judges, Osinbajo said the federal government was also trying to curb impunity and that the rule of law was followed because they were released within 24 hours after they had provided statements.

On the issue of herdsmen killing, he said about 800 herdsmen had been arrested across the country.

“The President has given firm instructions to the security agencies to arrest not only herdsmen, who are attacking communities anywhere in the country, but anyone of them or anyone at all in possession of firearms.

“There are about 800 of suspected violent herdsmen in the country who are currently in custody.”

He however lamented that the prosecution of the suspects was hindered by the slow judicial process.

Konduga insisted that he wanted to see and apologize to the Senator who was out of the country and still in Saudi Arabia for the 2016 Hajj exercise.

Sources said, “When the Maigadi (Gate man) accosted Konduga that the senator was not in the house, requested to see Justice Aisha Ndume, one of the senator’s wife, but was asked to come back the following day.

“As luck will have it, Konduga revisited the house on Wednesday at exactly 4pm, where he was identified by some Ndume’s close associates, who accompanied the senator to the Federal High Court, Abuja then.

“Policemen in charge of G.R.A police station were alerted and swooped into action leading to the rearrest of Konduga. He is now in police custody, while Senator Ndume have been informed” the sources said.

Already investigation further revealed that Konduga has been taken to Federal Neuro-psychiatric Hospital, Maiduguri at about 10am on Friday (Today), to ascertain his mental health, after which, if prove mentally okay, he will be handed over to appropriate authorities by the police.

When our Correspondent visited the said Neuro Psychiatric Hospital, the Prosecutor who accompanied Konduga (Names Withheld) declined comments, even as he referred our reporter to the Divisional Police Officer (DPO).

However, Senator Ndume in a telephone interview with our Correspondent confirmed the rearrest of Konduga in his residence in Maiduguri by the Police, insisting that he did not have further details, as he is presently out of the country for 2016 Hajj.
