Lagos Neighbourhood Safety Corp (LNSC) yesterday, foiled an attempt to kidnap attempt a two-year-old boy, Darasimi Tijani, who was allegedly lured by suspected kidnappers Muritala Lado and one Bassey, with N50.
It was gathered that the incident happened at No 90, Oyewole Road, Orile-Agege, about 9a.m. when the kidnappers realised that Darasim’s guardian, Mrs. Fathimo Balogun, went in to attend to the need of other kids.
Passers-by suspected the kidnappers’ sinister moves and raised alarm which led to their arrest by a mob.
The quick intervention of the LNSC officers saved the suspects from being lynched. Bassey was reported to have disguised as a madman but later opened up that he was sane.
The suspects reportedly confessed to have been into kidnapping of minors and that they sell each kid for N10,000. They also confessed that they used N50 and honey to lure their victims.
