"SECURITY ALERT BE WARNED !!!!!
A woman's car was snatched this afternoon with 11 month old baby inside the car. The woman parked along the road and left the baby and her granny inside the car with the car engine running to buy meat at the road side along Gbagada Lagos, and the kidnapper entered the car and sent the granny down and drove off the car with the baby.
Fortunately a soldier was passing by, immediately he took a bike to run after him, this led to multiple accident on the road and the car stopped working and kidnapper decided to lock himself and the baby inside the car in the middle of express way but area boys came to rescue of the baby.
He was caught and was taken to Pedro Police station at Somolu. Please always be careful of leaving children in a car alone or with anybody, if you are going to buy anything, make sure the car is locked even if the engine is still working. This happened in Gbagada around 12:15pm on the 29th of May 2017 in Lagos. May God continue to protect all Amin amin.."
