20 kidnappers were killed while trying to rescue the Igbonla students – Police

The Lagos state police command says 20 kidnappers were killed in the process of rescuing the six abducted students of Igbonla-Epe Model College.

The state commissioner of police, Fatai Owoseni said this on Friday while briefing journalists on the rescue operation.

The six boys, Agbaosi Judah, Jonah Peter, Philips Pelumi, Adebanjo George, Yusuf Faruq and Ramon Isiaka were released on Friday, 64 days after they were kidnapped.

Owoseni, however, regretted that one civilian volunteer died during the rescue process while eight policemen and four other civilian volunteers sustained injuries.

Owoseni said the rescue of the children did not come immediately because security agencies were being careful not to get hurt them.

“We have responsible security agencies that don’t want to sacrifice the lives of those children. Our objective was to do everything possible to get these children alive, unhurt and that’s exactly what has happened,” he said.
