Armed men on Saturday kidnapped nine landlords at Isheri, Ogun State.
Isheri is just a kilometer from Lagos.
The Nation reports that the landlords were having a routine exercise beside Lekki Gardens Estate when the gang struck.
Lagos and Ogun State Governments as well as the Nigeria Police are yet to comment on the development.
The incident occured less than a week after the Police paraded pipeline vandals and kidnappers who fled Lagos following raid on their hideouts by operatives of federal government’s Joint Military Task Force.
