A 51-year-old man named Austin Kanu has been taken into custody by Surulere Division agents of the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly kidnapping four young boys.

The victims, identified only as Toheeb’m’, Isaac’m’, Chukwuma’m’, and Idowu’m’ (surnames withheld), were found on October 29, 2022, at around 2010 hours, in a remote area of the National Stadium in Surulere by the stadium’s chief security officer, who subsequently contacted the police.

The suspect enticed the victims from Ogba and Agege to Surulere, according to the preliminary investigation. When their parents were contacted, they acknowledged the boys’ disappearance on October 29, 2022, in the early morning hours.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the state police command’s spokesperson, confirmed the arrest and said the culprit will be arraigned once the ongoing investigation was finished.

He continued by saying that the state’s police commissioner, CP Abiodun Alabi, urges Nigerians to exercise caution and alert security agencies to any suspicious activity.
