Militants Kidnap 13 Farmers In Lagos
SUSPECTED Kidnappers, who are militants, have abducted 13 farmers in Lagos State.
The militants, who were dressed in military uniforms, abducted the farmers around Igbodu-Isiwo Road, a farm settlement in Epe.
Those abducted were made up of seven farmers and six labourers.
Those who invaded the farm were said to be about 20, striking at about 10am on Wednesday.
They were said to have come through the river shooting sporadically.
They took away their victim in their waiting speed boat.
This will not be the first time farmers would be kidnapped in the area.
A female farmer, a six-month-old baby and Togolese labourer, simply identified as Baba Togo, were kidnapped on the farm in the area in September.
Those kidnapped included the owner of the farm, Oluwatoyosi Aboderin, her sister’s six-month-old baby and another female farmer, Ogechi Maku.
