A 61-year-old Lebanese woman, Alhaja Essa Dannawi, who was kidnapped at her residence in Lagos on May 2, has been rescued by the police, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Umar Manko, said on Thursday.

Manko told reporters in Lagos that the
woman was rescued on Sunday by the
Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), led
by SP Abba Kyari, without paying any
ransom. “The family members of the victim were extensively interrogated by the Police and after getting enough
evidence, a 23-year-old man, who is a
nephew to the victim, was arrested. “Thereafter, we immediately used him
to stage and arrest the leader of the
kidnappers, a 37-year-old Nigerian,
and thereafter, rescued the victim at
their hideout in the Oyingbo area of
Lagos. “Investigations continue as we now have details of the remaining gang
members who are at large,” he said.

The police boss said that during
interrogation, the prime suspect
confessed that he organised the kidnap. “The prime suspect duplicated the
victim’s room key and gave it to the
suspected kidnappers who quietly
walked into her room in her residence
at Ebute Meta at about 3:15 a.m. and
kidnapped her,” Manko said.

He, however, added that the victim
was in good health, while the prime
suspect is still helping police
investigations into the matter.
