BREAKING: Police rescue kidnapped Fouani brothers in Lagos

The Lagos police command has successfully rescued the three Fouani brothers, who were abducted on June 14.

Abbas Fouani, Youssef Fouani, and Amtal Fouani were kidnapped around 6 PM while returning from their factory by boat.

Fouani Nigeria Ltd, the company associated with the brothers, is a major player in the electronics market and the sole distributor of LG, Hisense, and Maxi products in Nigeria. The abduction had caused significant concern, prompting the police to work tirelessly for their release.

According to reports, the brothers, along with their boat driver and his assistant, were released late Monday night in Orugbo Iddo.

The release was confirmed by Benjamin Hundeyin, the police spokesperson for the state, via a WhatsApp chat. He credited the successful rescue to the combined efforts of the Lagos Marine Police and the Nigerian Navy.

“They were rescued late last night in Orugbo Iddo. Our marine police, with the support of the Nigerian Navy, brought them to shore,” Hundeyin stated. “Thereafter, our tactical team in the area took them home on Banana Island in the early hours of today. Five of them were rescued: three Lebanese, the boat captain, and his assistant.”

The prompt and coordinated response by the police and naval forces highlights the effectiveness of inter-agency collaboration in addressing security challenges in the region.
