Lagos-Ibadan Railway Project: UGM abduct Chinese workers, kill policeman

Unknown gunmen have abducted four Chinese workers handling the Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge railway project and killed a policeman in Ogun.

Unknown gunmen have abducted four Chinese workers handling the Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge railway project and killed a policeman in Ogun.

Abimbola Oyeyemi, the spokeswoman for the police in Ogun, confirmed the incident in a statement on Thursday in Abeokuta.

Ms Oyeyemi explained that the command had deployed tactical teams to trail the kidnappers.

He, however, stated that the police could not ascertain whether the gunmen were herdsmen.

“It is true. The incident happened on Wednesday. The victims are Chinese expatriates working at the construction site at the terminus of the railway around the Alaagba area, not far from Kila,” she disclosed.

The police officer added, “The gunmen laid ambush for the victims on their way, and they were attacked. A police officer escorting them was killed.

“We have started the investigation since yesterday, we are on the trail of those people, and hopefully, we are going to get them.

“All our tactical teams have been deployed to that direction, and we are trying to locate them. We believe that by the grace of God, we are going to get them.

She, however, pointed out, “We cannot say for now if the abductors are Fulani herdsmen until when we are able to get them.”
