The Lagos State House of Representatives on Thursday called on the security agencies in the country to intensify rescue efforts for school students and teachers kidnapped in the state earlier this morning. We reported it earlier today that some unknown gunmen suspected to be militants on Thursday morning, invaded Igbo Nla Model College in Epe, Lagos, whisking away the principal.
According to NTA News, the ungodly act were perpetrated by the kidnappers in early hours when the students were supposedly having their daily morning assembly.
The gunmen abducted the principal of the Junior Secondary School whose name is Mr Oyesola and Mr Akirinmade who is the Principal of the Senior Secondary School. They also abducted some of the school students.
The police spokesperson in Lagos State, Bisi Kolawole, told Premium Times that two of the students who were abducted, have been rescued, leaving two more students, a teacher and the school principal.
“We’re still on their trail to rescue the others who include the principal, a teacher and two students,” Ms. Kolawole, an assistant commissioner of police said.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Fatai Owoseni, confirmed the incident during his weekly press briefing in Lagos and said that two of the students had been recovered.
“We received an unfortunate information this morning that four students and vice principal of Model College, Epe, were kidnapped at about 8 a.m.
“The kidnappers went away with them in their speed boat. As soon as we got the information, crack detectives were sent there. We have been able to recover two of the students.
“The vice principal and two students are still with the kidnappers. Our men have begun searching for them. We are collaborating with the Navy to search the creeks and the waters.
“By the Grace of God, they will be rescued soon,’’ Mr. Owoseni said.
