The Lagos State Police Command says it has launched an investigation into the kidnap of the traditional ruler of Shangisha.

The indication was given by Spokesman of the Command, ASP Olaride Famous-Cole.

News express reports that Yusuf Ogundare, the Baale of Shangisha, was on Wednesday kidnapped by unknown gunmen who in disguise, claimed to be potential land buyers.

According the Baale’s brother Mohammed Adams, Baale Yusuf Ogundare was invited to CMD Guest House by some unknown men over the phone claiming that they wanted to buy a piece of land. He stated further that while taking the men to Shangisha inside the buyer’s Toyota Venza car with unknown registration no, for the inspection of the land, they discovered that the men, three in number, were armed.

Subsequently, the hoodlums diverted the journey and on getting to Domino’s Pizza Junction, along the CMD Road, Shangisha, he was dropped by the roadside while his brother was taken away to an unknown destination. Effort to reach him on phone proved abortive as he made his way to the Police station.

The Command’s Spokesman, however, advised members of the public to come forward with any intelligent information that may lead to the rescue of Yusuf Ogundare and the arrest of his abductors as investigations and tracking of these abductors have commenced.
