A kidnap attempt of a two-year-old boy, Darasimi Tijani, who was allegedly lured by 2 suspected kidnappers with N50 was yesterday foiled by the Lagos Neighbourhood Safety Corp (LNSC).
Incident occurred at No 90, Oyewole Road, Orile-Agege, about 9a.m. when the kidnappers realised that Darasim’s guardian, Mrs. Fathimo Balogun, went in to attend to the need of other kids.

Passers-by, it was learnt, suspected the kidnappers’ sinister moves and raised the alarm which led to their arrest by a mob. However, the swift intervention of the LNSC officers saved the suspects from being lynched.
It was gathered that the suspects confessed to have been into kidnapping of minors, adding that they sold each kid for N10,000. They allegedly confessed that they used N50 and honey to lure their victims.
NewTelegraphonline reports that the Chairman of LNSC, Mr. Israel Ajao, who spoke through the Public Relations Officer of the agency, Mr Afolabi Olayiwola, confirmed the arrest of the suspects.
According to Ajao, a retired Deputy Inspector General of Police, preliminary investigation by the agency revealed that one of the suspects speaks Hausa while the other pretends as mad man.
“Our primary investigation revealed that one of the suspects is a Hausa man by name Muritala Lado, who claimed to be a tailor, the second suspect pretended to be a mad man but later mentioned his name as Bassey.
They all confessed to have committed the crime. They have all been moved to the Agency Headquarters at Bolade Oshodi for necessary further action.”
