The police in Lagos State have foiled a kidnap attempt and rescued an Indian national from suspected kidnappers in Ikorodu area of the state.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Fatai Owoseni, confirmed this on Thursday to newsmen at his weekly news briefing.

Owoseni said the Indian was working at a construction site when the incident happened.

According to him, the suspected kidnappers were leading him (victim) to their boat in the creeks when they engaged a team of policemen in a gun battle.

“Our men were able to rescue the Indian national before the kidnappers could take him into the creeks. The suspects, however, escaped in their boat,’’ he said.

Owoseni, however, said five robbery and one kidnap suspects were arrested in the last one week in different parts of the state.
