Alleged plan by a female kidnap syndicate to abduct some students on their way to school last Friday, in Aguda area of Surulere, Lagos, was botched, following the the arrest of three of its members.
The women were said to have succeeded in cajoling six students who were heading to a.....
public school on the Island and zoomed off towards Orile/Mile Two.
There are, however, different accounts as to how they met their waterloo as a version of the account had it that the eldest of the abducted students, a Junior Secondary School 2 girl, raised an alarm on noticing that the route plied was different from the regular route to their school.
The alarm raised reportedly attracted curious commuters at Orile who chased after the vehicle but another version had it that the students were kept inside the boot of the vehicle.
However, on reaching Orile, commercial motorcyclists were said to have been attracted by bangs from the boot of the car and out of curiosity, reportedly stopped the car and demanded that the boot be opened for them to ascertain what was inside.
On noticing that the students were abducted, a mob descended on the three women and attempted to set them ablaze but for the timely intervention of policemen from Orile division. The mob, however, succeeded in setting their operational car ablaze.
