JUST IN: Police Reveals Where Kidnapped Lebanese, Fouani, Others Were Found, Who Rescued Them

The Lagos State Police Command has reported the successful rescue of the three abducted Fouani brothers.

Police spokesperson Benjamin Hundeyin confirmed their release in a statement to journalists on Tuesday.

The three brothers, identified as Abbas Fouani, Youssef Fouani, and Amtal Fouani, were reportedly abducted around 6 p.m. in Lagos on June 14 while returning from their factory by boat. Fouani Nigeria Ltd, their company, specializes in electronics and is the exclusive distributor of LG, Hisense, and Maxi products in Nigeria.

The police had stated on Monday that they were working “tirelessly” to secure the victims’ release.

According to Vanguard, the victims, including the boat driver and his assistant, were released Monday night in Orugbo Iddo.

Confirming their release, Hundeyin attributed the success to the efforts of the Lagos Marine police, with naval assistance, adding that the victims have since been returned to their residence. “They were rescued late last night in Orugbo Iddo. Our marine police with the support of the Nigerian Navy brought them to shore. Thereafter, our tactical team in the area took them home on Banana Island in the early hours of today. Five of them, three Lebanese, the boat captain and his assistant,” he said.
