Sad! Gunmen kidnap Ogun traffic officer on Lagos-Ibadan expressway

Mr. Popoola Olasupo, who serves as an officer of the Ogun State Traffic Compliance and 

Enforcement Corps (TRACE), was abducted while en route to his duty post on Sunday morning. The kidnapping occurred at the Fidiwo axis on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway, around 6:30 am, according to sources from the News Agency of Nigeria.

It was also gathered that the police and local vigilantes are on the trail of the kidnappers.

According to eyewitness, the kidnappers suddenly emerged from the bush and opened fire on a commercial bus with an intention to kidnap.

Eventually, none of the passengers were kidnapped but the TRACE officer was unlucky.

When contacted, the spokesperson, Ogun police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident to newsmen in Abeokuta, saying that the state anti-kidnapping team is already after the kidnappers.

“Our anti kidnapping squad are already after them, we are combing the forests and we know that they will all be arrested.

“Ogun state is not a ground for criminals to settle. It is either they leave or we smoke them out of this state,” he said.
