Woman Lost her life

A 37-year-old woman named Bilikisu Kazeem tragically lost her life due to a gunshot wound incurred during a confrontation between police and kidnappers on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.


The incident was confirmed by SP Omolola Odutola, the spokesperson for the Ogun State Police Command. During the police operation against the kidnappers, nine of the ten abducted individuals were successfully rescued.


The kidnapping incident occurred on Friday when the abductors targeted travelers on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway. Among those kidnapped was Philip Aivoji, the Lagos State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).


The police undertook a rescue mission to save the victims. SP Odutola reported that during the escape effort, a White Mazda Bus with the registration LSR 288 XE was slightly damaged. Four individuals, Eunice Afolake Osalusi, Erinfolami Samuel, Obafemi Da Altantra, and Adeyinka Mathew, suffered non-lethal bullet wounds and are currently recovering in a stable condition in the hospital.


Regrettably, Bilikisu Kazeem passed away before she could receive medical attention. Her family, who were transporting her to the hospital, declined a police-requested autopsy and took her remains.


Police recovered several items from the scene, including an AK47 magazine with 28 live rounds, believed to be owned by the criminals, along with mobile phones, and a car key, which were returned to their rightful owners.


The abduction of the PDP chairman took place while he was returning from a stakeholders' meeting in Oyo State, hosted by Governors Seyi Makinde and Ademola Adeleke.
