Police Rescue Kidnapped Lagos PDP Chairman, Eight Others

The Ogun State Police Command has rescued nine out of the 10 members of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Lagos kidnapped by gunmen last Thursday on their way back from Ibadan.

The State Police Commissioner, Mr Abiodun Alamutu, confirmed the development at a news briefing in Abeokuta on Monday.

He named Mr Phillip Aivoji, Chairman of PDP in Lagos among those freed, regretting, however, that one of the abductees, Bilikisu Kazeem, lost her life during exchange of gunfire between police and the hoodlums.

According to him, the abductees were rescued early on Jan. 29 after four days in captivity.
