LAGOS JUNE 16TH (NEWSRNAGERS)-Two days after the abduction of the Managing Director of Fouani Company along with three Lebanese in Lagos, their whereabouts remain unknown.

Though there are indications that security operatives have intensified rescue efforts, there has been no information on their whereabouts.

It was gathered that armed men abducted the Managing Director of Fouani Company, which represents LG and Hisense, along with three Lebanese while travelling by boat in Lagos on Friday.

It was noted that the names of the victims had not been ascertained but it was learnt that they were abducted around Falomo Bridge while traveling from Apapa to Victoria Island.

A source familiar with the incident, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of its sensitive nature, told Sunday PUNCH that the kidnappers had reached out, demanding ransom.

“Yesterday (Friday) evening, the Managing Director of Fouani Company (LG and Hisense) and three Lebanese were kidnapped around Falomo Bridge while travelling from Apapa to Victoria Island by boat. The kidnappers have asked for $1.5m,” the source said.

“Yes, it is true. We got the report and we are looking into it. Please, I’m not obliged to state more than that,” he simply said.

When our correspondent asked about the details of the names of the abducted persons, Hundeyin insisted, “I’m not obliged to state the names, when, where and how it happened for now but we are looking into it.”
