Yesterday afternoon, a man snatched a child who was walking on the
street with her mum, jumped on his bike around Beckleys Estate, Abule
Egba Lagos, and tried to ride away, but luck ran out on him when the
mother of the child raised an alarm and other passersby chased him on
their own bikes.
When he realized that many people were after him, he threw the child
from the bike thinking people would stop chasing him but the chasers
didn't give up and eventually captured him.
The child was injured and has been taken to the hospital while the
kidnapper was almost beaten to death. Fortunately for him, police from
Oko Oba division came to his rescue and took him away.
