The Ogun State police command has rescued a Chinese, Lee Qiang, who was kidnapped on Monday along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

Qiang was kidnapped by six armed men around 5pm at Ogere while he was on his way to Abeokuta, the state capital.

It was learnt that the Chinese was rescued Tuesday morning by operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) in Ogun, who engaged the kidnappers in gun duel.

Spokesman for the command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirming his release, said the police overpowered the kidnappers, who fled with gunshot wounds, arresting one of the suspects.

“The man was going to Abeokuta from Kogi when they kidnapped him. He was in his vehicle with his driver. They kidnapped him for ransom but they were unable to get it because they were immediately hunted.

“The Commissioner of Police Ahmed Iliyasu dispatched operatives of the FSARS to the scene with a clear instruction that the victim must be rescued unhurt and the hoodlums apprehended.

“The team swung into action, combed the entire area and later located the hideout of the kidnappers. On sighting policemen, the hoodlums engaged them in gun battle at the end of which one of the suspects was arrested while others escaped with gunshot injuries.

“The victim was rescued unhurt. The arrested suspect is currently helping the police in their investigation, while the victim has been reunited with his people.

“The Commissioner Ahmed Iliyasu further appealed to the public, especially hospitals and health workers to report any body with bullet injuries in their area,”‎ he said.
