Masked gunmen kidnap AVM Sikiru Smith in Lagos

Some masked unknown gunmen have abducted Air Vice-Marshal Sikiru Smith (rtd), in the Ajah area of Lagos State.

Smith is a cousin to a former Inspector-General of Police and current Chairman of the Police Service Commission, Musiliu Smith.

It was learnt that the retired general, who is currently the Chairman of Double Wealth Ventures Limited – a dredging and engineering firm – was supervising work on a site in the Ajah area of Lagos State on Monday evening, when masked gunmen invaded the place and shot sporadically and then whisked the retired general away in a waiting speedboat and sped away.

According to an audio released by his driver, Corporal Odichi, the retired AVM engaged in a struggle with the gunmen before he was subdued.

Lagos State Police Command PRO Mr. Adekunle Ajisebutu said the command is aware of the incident and the force is “on it”.
