Police Rescue Fouani Brothers, Two Others Kidnapped In Lagos

The Lagos State Police Command has said its operatives have rescued the three abducted Fouani brothers.

News About Nigeria had reported that on June 14, three brothers, identified as Abbas Fouani, Youssef Fouani, and Amtal Fouani, were abducted around 6 pm in Lagos.

Fouani Nigeria Ltd. specialises in electronics and is the sole distributor of LG, Hisense, and Maxi products in Nigeria.

The three brothers were reportedly coming from their factory by boat when they were abducted.

On Monday, the police said they were working “tirelessly” to ensure that the victims were released.

It was learned that the victims, including the boat driver and his assistant, were released Monday night in Orugbo Iddo.

Benjamin Hundeyin, a police spokesperson in the state, said the feat was achieved by the Lagos Marine Police with support from the Navy.

Hundeyin said the victims have since been taken to their residence.

“They were rescued late last night in Orugbo, Iddo. Our marine police, with the support of the Nigerian Navy, brought them to shore,” Hundeyin said.

“Thereafter, our tactical team in the area took them home on Banana Island in the early hours of today.

“Five of them—three Lebanese, the boat captain, and his assistant.”

In another development, the Lagos State Police Command has begun an investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the death of a businessman, Onyejekwe Izuchukwu, whose remains were found in a hotel room in the Ikoyi area of the state.

The 51-year-old businessman was said to have lodged in the hotel in Ikoyi while engaging in the business activities that brought him back to the country.
