Lagos Lawmaker speaks on discovery of kidnappers den in Ojokoro – Lagos

Following the shocking discovery of a ‘den’ used by kidnappers to commit evil acts in Obadeyi, Ojokoro, the lawmaker representing Ifako Ijaiye Constituency II in the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Rasheed Makinde, has condemned the atrocities of the ritual killers in the area.

Hon. Makinde described the discovery as one that will help reawaken the need for the people to take security of lives and properties serious in their community and environs.

“I thank God for the discovery of this dark haven of the kidnappers. Although I’m somewhat taken aback that such a thing could happen in an area well secured as Ojokoro, I want to state clearly that no stone will be left unturned to tackle the issue to a conclusive point.

“Our youths are the ones I will focus more on so as to hinder them being dragged into such illicit act”. Makinde stated.
