The Lagos State Police Command on Monday said it arrested two suspects over alleged attempted kidnap of a teenager in Iyana-Ipaja area of the state.
Parading the suspects, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Edgal Imohimi, said that the suspects planned to carry out their nefarious act on March 1.
Imohimi said that the suspected kidnappers were arrested following a tip-off by a person who they invited to take part in the failed kidnap.
“When he sighted the father of the teenager, he discovered that he is someone who he knew from his hometown and that he had been good to him.
“He sought audience with the man’s wife who later discussed it with her husband and subsequently reported to the police,” the commissioner said.
