CP Odumosu Rescues Kidnapped NYSC Member

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu has boldly coordinated the rescue operation of one Onyiwara Chinwe Faith, a Corp member serving at ABC Farm, Ilamija Nla Village, Epe.

The Corp member was rescued at about 2.20am on Tuesday in a swamp forest around Ilamija Nla in Epe after a gun battle. The kidnappers’ ring leader, Moses Ofeye (31) from Ondo State, of Ijaw origin, was arrested with gun wounds.

The victim was taken to hospital for medical attention due to the shock and trauma she experienced. But she is in stable condition. She has just been handed over to the Lagos State Coordinator of the NYSC and her family by the Commissioner of Police. 

Onyiwara Chinwe Faith was abducted on 29 November, 2019 while on her way to attend CDS meeting at Ilamija, Epe. The abductors demanded for the ransom of N50million but later reduced to N400,000 from the Farm Manager to be dropped at Ijebu Ososa area. But no ransom was paid.

The Lagos State Coordinator of the NYSC and family of the rescued Corp member were filled with gratitude to the Commissioner of Police for rescuing their daughter alive.
