Marshals of the Federal Road Safety Commission on Sunday rescued a pregnant woman from two suspected kidnappers at a checkpoint in Aradagun, Badagry, Lagos State.
The suspects were taking the hostage to an undisclosed location when their Toyota Camry car with registration number KTU356CE was flagged down around 7.30am at AP filling station.
The team led by Assistant Route Commamder P. Danboyi of FRSC’s Badagry Unit flagged down the vehicle few metres to Aradagun bus stop, a statement by the Corps Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, said.
“In the vehicle were two suspected kidnappers (male) and a pregnant woman who was their victim. The pregnant woman sustained body injuries and was rescued to Ola-Oki Hospital, Ibereko where she immediately gave birth to a baby boy.
“The two kidnappers were about being burnt by an irate mob when some soldiers arrived the scene and arrested them and handed them over to the Nigeria Police in Badagry .
“The Corps Marshal of FRSC, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi has expressed appreciation to the galant officers and commended them for their bravery while assuring the members of the public that his men are not only on the road to see to their traffic safety but also their security by cooperating with other law enforcement agencies to shield them from marauders and bandits.”
