A Briton who was abducted by unknown gunmen on July 16, a few minutes after arriving in Nigeria has been rescued by policemen attached to the Lagos State Police Command.
The victim was kidnapped a few kilometers from the Murtala Mohammed Airport and taken to an unknown destination.
Reports say a combined team of operatives from the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and their counterpart from the Special Intelligence Bureau (SIB) laid siege on an uncompleted two storey building at Okota Isolo area of Lagos State, rescuing the British national and arresting a suspect.
The kidnappers had demanded a one million dollar ransom to effect the release of the Briton but their hideout was on the orders of the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Umar Manko.
