We will apprehend kidnappers of Fouani brothers, Sanwo-Olu assures 

The Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Wednesday, said the state would do everything to ensure those behind the kidnapping of the three Fouani brothers, who were rescued  by the police  Tuesday are apprehended and brought to book.

Sanwo-Olu who said he has met with the freed Lebanese at their residence at Banana Island, said the kidnapping has sent a wrong signal in the state and noted that the perpetrators of the abduction of the Labenese won’t go scot free.

The governor added that contrary to some reports that they were kidnapped somewhere in Marina, he said the kidnapping took place on the high sea.

“We are on top of it, security operatives are combing everywhere, it is a top signal, Lagos will not condone it.”

Sanwo-olu  said this when the leadership of baptist convention led by its African  President, Rev. Israel Akanbi, paid him a courtesy visit in his office in Alausa, Ikeja Wednesday.

 The governor charged all religious leaders to ensure  they play their role so that government can bring good governance   to the people. 

The governor added that they have a crucial role to play in government and they should ensure there is a symbiotic communication between them and government.

Reverend Akanbi earlier in his speech told the governor that, the leaders of the church across the globe shall be having their annual gathering in Lagos at Eko Hotels and Suites in July, 2024, and that Lagos was ch…osen as the venue because of the relative peace in the state.

Akanbi also commended the state governor for the role he is playing to ensure relative peace in the state.
