Sanwo-Olu Vows Crackdown On Kidnappers Of Fouani Brothers

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State on Wednesday vowed to ensure the arrest of those behind the recent kidnapping of three Lebanese nationals, including the Managing Director of Fouani Nigeria Limited, Muhammed Fouani.


This was contained in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Gboyega Akosile.


According to Sanwo-Olu, his administration would not condone people of evil intentions in the state.


He assured residents, particularly business owners and religious tourists, of adequate security in the state, saying his administration is committed to making the state peaceful, attractive and homely.


“The security of life and property is paramount, and we do not leave anything to chance on that. The very recent incident that happened in Lagos was about the kidnapping of three members of our Lebanese community. We are happy that they have been released, and this morning (Wednesday), I met with them, and we have useful information to ensure that the perpetrators of the act are not going to be spared.


“We know we have an idea of how far they have gone, and we will do everything to ensure that we do not give them a space in our city and state. I want to assure all our citizens and businesses, both national and international, that Lagos will continue to remain safe and peaceful. People thought the incident happened around the Five Cowry, Falomo. No, it actually happened on the big water on the way to Ikorodu. So they were not even around Falomo.


“We want to assure you that we are on top of it. The security operatives are combing all the necessary areas. This is a strong signal that Lagos will not condone such people with evil intentions.


“They do not deserve any sort of recognition. So, we will continue to make Lagos peaceful. We will continue to make it attractive and homely. We will continue to ensure that businesses thrive. We will ensure people live and work in a conducive environment”, the governor said.


Recall that the Managing Director of Fouani Company, which represents LG and Hisense, along with three Lebanese, were kidnapped on Friday while travelling by boat in Lagos State.


However, they regained their freedom on Monday.


The spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed this via a text message to our correspondent on Tuesday.


According to him, the brothers identified as Abbas Fouani, Youssef Fouani, and Amtal Fouani, who were abducted on June 14 around 6 pm in Lagos were rescued on Monday night in Orugbo Iddo.
