Kidnapped foreigner, a Briton, not American – Police

said they had received vital  information on the kidnap of a foreign national, in Lagos, weekend.

This is just as it clarified that the abducted man was not an American as claimed but a Briton.

Although the command did not disclose the identity of the abducted Briton, it simply said he was a businessman with an undisclosed business interest in Nigeria.

It was gathered that the Briton was abducted, weekend, in front of his house located in Victoria Island area. Time was 11p.m.

Spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, Ngozi Braide, when contacted on phone said: “The victim is not an American as alleged, but a British businessman whose mission in Nigeria is not yet known. But we have been able to receive some vital information as regards the kidnap case.”

She  however, declined to give details of the operation, saying  it would jeopardize police investigation.
Following the kidnap described as uncommon in Lagos, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Umar Manko had  reportedly directed that  security be beefed up around embassies in the state.

Police sources hinted that the CP had also detailed a crack team of detectives to investigate the kidnap with a charge to leave no stone unturned.
