CITIZENS COMPASS –After three days in captivity, three abducted brothers have regained their freedom in Lagos State.
Until their abduction, the Lebanese brothers run Fouani Nigeria Ltd in the State.

They were rescued by operatives of the Lagos State Police Command on Monday night.

The three brothers, identified as Abbas Fouani, Youssef Fouani, and Amtal Fouani, were reportedly abducted at about 6 p.m. in Lagos on Friday.

The trio was kidnapped while traveling by boat from Apapa to Victoria Island when they ran into an ambush near Falomo Bridge.

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

Spokesperson, Lagos State Police Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said the feat was achieved by the Lagos Marine Police with support from the Nigerian Navy.

He 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.

“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,” he said.
