Sept 26, 2015 – Alak Vision, Petrol, Gas Filling Station Kidnapped 3 Days To Hajj Trip, Kidnappers Shot Akeem Lawal After Collecting N30Million Ransom 

An Abeokuta-based oil magnate, Mr Akeem Lawal, 36, was kidnapped and shot after the kidnappers were paid N30 million as ransom.
The incident happened while he was on his way to his home after the day’s business.

The Ayetoro-born Lawal, who owns Alak Vision Filling Station in Abeokuta North local government area of the state, was reported to have been abducted by a four-man gang of kidnappers around 6:30 pm a few days to his trip to Saudi Arabia for the hajj exercise.

He was among the intending pilgrims to this year’s hajj as he had completed all arrangements and was shortlisted among those to leave the state on 11th September before he was abducted.
Our correspondent reliably gathered that he spent three days in the hands of his abductors.

It was further gathered that his abandoned SUV was seen along Ilaro road the night he was abducted.
Furthermore, it was gathered that he was beaten blue black and later shot by his abductors.
A very close friend of the man told our correspondent that a ransom was paid before he could be released.
“I can confirm to you that Alak was kidnapped on his way home on the 9th of this month and he was released the third day.

“We parted with some amount of money before he could be released to us. The kidnappers earlier demanded N150 million but after much pleading, we paid them N30 million before he could be released.
“While revealing his experience in the hands of his captors to us, he said he was seriously beaten and was taken round the bush for no just cause.

“God is in total control. He has never been to hajj and he has been preparing for this exercise. He had done everything needed to be done, payment, screening, medical and what have you. Two days for him to leave the country for the holy land, he was kidnapped.

“Who knows whether if he had gone, he would have been among those that died in the crane incident in Saudi Arabia. For every disappointment, God has a reason.
“He was later shot in the left side of the chest. Only God saved him, we thank God for his life. He has been operated and is now recuperating in a private hospital in Abeokuta.

“The police are now trying to arrest the culprits. I want them to do more to ensure that all these devilish people are dislodged from the state,” the source explained.

Our correspondent gathered from another close friend of the victim, who pleaded anonymity, that he is currently at a hospital in Abeokuta.

  1. ALLIHAMDULILAHI,ALLAH KNOW WHY SUCH HAPPEN,MAYBE IF HE IS AMONG THE HAJJ HE MAY HAVE BEEN DEAD BY NOW.(LET GIVE THANKS TO THOSE WHO HURT OUR EXPECTATION)

  2. When criminals think they can commit a crime and get away with it then, that is mind boggling and big concern to the bureaucracy. Our Country has not been proactive in fighting against kidnapping and other unspeakable crime in our society. All we need to do is to adopt strong measures like China or other South east Asia Countries where their laws vibrate like human. Before this situation degenerate to this level, some right minded people were canvassing for death sentencing for those who got caught up in this act but other sects were saying no, that the measure is too stringent to that crime. Now everybody is now panicking because nobody knows who’s the next victim. We need to adopt a law that will make mandatory sentence for these evildoers. This Country has become so lawlessness that even the bigwigs are crying wolf of the bad situation but failed to do something about it. We have to stop complaining and do something right for ourselves. Our legislator need to go back to the drawing board and re-enact a standard law that will remove this cancer in our society.
