The Osun State Police Command on Saturday said it had rescued one Bewaji Oladipo, who was allegedly kidnapped in Lagos, at Railway Crossing.

The command, in a press statement by its spokesperson, SP Folashade Odoro, said the kidnapped victim was rescued at about 6:45 p.m., on Friday, by the state police “Puff Adder” operatives, during a stop-and-search operation along Osogbo-Ilorin expressway.

Odoro said the victim was kidnapped when he went to withdraw cash from an ATM point within his vicinity at Command Area Iyana-Ipaja Lagos, by suspected four-man kidnapping gang, two of them dressed in military camouflage.
