Feb 19, 2013 – Kidnapper Killed Girlfriend & 7 Family Members In Igando, Lagos

It was a bloody weekend at Igando area of Lagos State, when a suspected kidnapper said to be operating in Delta State, attacked the Lagos home of his girlfriend, killing her and seven others.

We gathered that the alleged kidnapper, identified simply as Henry, who is currently on the run, stormed the home of his girlfriend known as Sandra, around 10 p.m on Saturday, with an Ak-47 rifle and opened fire on all the occupants of the apartment, leaving Sandra, her elder sister, with two of her elder sister’s children dead.

Sandra’s twin sister and one of her elder sister’s daughter, however, survived.

Henry was also said to have proceeded to the home of another of Sandra’s elder sisters, living in the area, where he reportedly killed the woman and her three children.

The news of the killing quickly threw the area into disarray, as residents hurriedly shut their doors to avoid being hit by the rampaging kidnapper.

Policemen from all formations in the state were said to have raced down to Igando in search of the kidnapper who they said drove in a Sport Utility Van, SUV, to the scene.

Sources told Vanguard that an occupant of the building where Sandra was killed, reported at the Igando Police Station that robbers were operating in their building.

But when the police got to  the scene, the gunman had left, but they discovered the lifeless bodies of Sandra, her elder sister and her children, while Sandra’s twin sister who sustained  bullet wound told the police who their attacker was.

According to a source, who pleaded anonymity: “Sandra’s twin sister told us that the attacker was her late twin sister’s boyfriend who is familiar with everyone in their family but nobody knew he was a kidnapper.

“She told us that her late sister used to visit the boyfriend, Henry, at his base in Delta State and in one of such visits two weeks ago, some heavily armed men stormed Henry’s apartment manhandling Sandra in the process.

She added that the armed men reportedly told Sandra that her lover absconded with their share of the ransom paid to them for one of their  kidnapping exploits, threatening to wipe out all his (Henry’s) family members if he did not pay them their money.

Thereafter, Sandra contacted her family members in Lagos, informing them of what had happened to her and they rushed to Delta State and brought her to Lagos for proper treatments.

But while she was receiving the treatment, Henry, feeling betrayed, stormed their Lagos home. She told us that the moment Henry entered their apartment, her sister’s children welcomed him without knowing that he was out to kill them. [By Ifeanyi Okolie Vanguard]

    He is a Niger/Delta Christian terrorists yet this reporter can not simply chose a word to describe him. I’m pretty sure that if it were Kabiru or Isah that committed this act he will be labelled terrorists. But now that is Henry he is a kidnapper. When we the media be objective in their reportage?If an American wake in the morning and goes to school to shoot everybody including himself that is normal and can never be labelled a terrorists. To me that is the greatest injustice to Islam. I hope next time you shall report the way it is and not along American line of reporting. Let us call a spade a spade and learn to respect other.

    he is a serial killer. But yanky, u ar taking dis too far into religion, its not like dat. Yes he is accussed of being a kidnapper making him a terrorist not a religious figther cos he is just trying 2 cover his evil tracks. For sure, justice must take its course as soon as he is caught. May d soul of the departed rest in the bossom of the Lord Amen.

Please endure to have the forgiving heart of Christ Jesus,Amen there is always forgiving and a harmless ways of settling manner of anger and upsets in the highest order in every nature of business or activities we are engaged in, we shouldn’t let anger or great annoyance and high provocation control us to act bitterly against our loved ones who in one way or the other offend us. Please let’s remember that this people we want to harm are related to us by blood , so do not kill your blood for we are all blood Relations Amen, and we should love our blood, even if the deceiver and the killer Satan is decisively putting it to us at that point in time of great anger to harm and kill those of our loved ones, please my beloved I go on my knees to beg you through the infinite mercy of Christ Jesus to try everything humanly possible to endure and resist this most grievous temptation of the devil, and spare the blood of your friends, neighbors, relatives,cousins, nephews, uncles,brothers, sisters, mother, father and parents of kinds and u will be rest assured through Christ Jesus an eva lasting happy life for the rest of your life and life to come because you are a winner in Christ Jesus Amen N Amen ?
