Mr Umar Manko, the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, has pledged not to rest until those who kidnapped Mr Kehinde Bamigbetan, the Ejigbo Local Government Chairman, were fished out.
ASP Damasus Ozoani, the deputy police spokesman at the state command, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Lagos.
Ozoani said that information received by the police indicated that the local government chairman was kidnapped around 11p.m. on Monday.
Ozoani said the police were making efforts to unravel the circumstance surrounding Bamigbetan’s abduction, adding that they would try their best to rescued him.
“The police are investigating the matter; we do not want to do our investigations on the pages of newspapers in order not to jeopardise investigators’ work,” he added.
“We do not have the identity of the kidnappers and the driver of the vehicle used for the kidnap took to his heel.’’
Meanwhile, sources close to the state government alleged that the suspected kidnappers had demanded 1 million dollars in ransom for his release.
