“Foiled Kidnap Attempt

A very big congratulations to everyone that made it possible for the kidnap of one of our neighbors to be foiled.

Mrs Caroline Bassey was successfully kidnapped out of her residence at Peter Ojie street off Winners Way by kidnappers masquerading as people who want to rent chairs from her in her compound.

The incident which happened at about 11.30am today Saturday 4th November 2023 was masterminded by kidnappers who came in a Toyota Camry car.

They succeeded in tying one of her aides and putting him in the refrigerator before driving out of her premises with the victim in her own personal car.

However, luck ran out of them, as alarm for help was raised and as the kidnappers were driving out of her premises, a dare brave Good Samaritan blocked them and a bid to abandon their Camry vehicle, two of them jumped out of the vehicle to join their colleagues in the victim’s car as they were trying to reverse having noticed the blockage but one of them wasn’t successful as the dare.”
