    Unknown gunmen have Kidnapped Air Vice Marshal Sikiru Smith (retd.), in the Ajah area of Lagos State.

    Smith is a cousin of a former Police Inspector General and current Police Committee Chairman Musiliu Smith.

    It was learnt that the retired general, who is currently the Chairman of Double Wealth Ventures Limited – a dredging and engineering firm – was supervising work on a site in the Ajah area of Lagos State on Monday when masked gunmen invaded the place and shot sporadically.

    The gunmen had been said to have snatched and speeded away with the retired man in a waiting speedboat.

    The retired AVM waged a fight with gunmen before he was subdued, according to an SOS voice notice shared by his driver, Corporal Odiji.

    Odiji stated, “This is an emergency. I am Corporal Odiji attached to Air Vice Marshal Smith. They just abducted him from the site where we were working. Some gunmen who were wearing masks just came and snatched my boss now. They shot everywhere. I was near where I was fixing my boss’ vehicle.

    “As I was coming, I saw them leaving in a boat but I wasn’t armed so I just ran to the site and I saw his glasses and where he struggled with them. Please pass this information. It is an emergency.”

    The Lagos State Police Command Spokesman, Mr. Adekunle Ajisebutu, undertook to make inquiries and provide an in-depth reply in due course when he was in contact on phone.

      It is high time this ugly trend is napped at the bud before everything goes worst. The implication of kidnapping a top military officer points to the fact that Nigeria is not safe.
