The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni, has confirmed that the doctor, whom he simply referred to as Dr. Ajayi, kidnapped about three days ago, has been rescued by men of the Lagos State Police Command.
The Police Commissioner made this assertion while having a session of interaction with a team of online practitioners at the Truffle Inn, GRA, Ikeja, this evening.
He strongly noted that the rescued mission which was undertaken after positive intelligent gathering was successful and was devoid of any form of ransom. He maintained that contrary to news making the rounds that an expartriate doctor was kidnapped, it was a Nigerian doctor that was kidnapped, and has been successfully rescued.
He praised men of the Nigeria Police for their gallantry. Mr. Owoseni spoke in company of some officers of the Police Force including the Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs. Dolapo Badmus.
