A farm workers at Igbodu-Isiwo, Epe, Lagos State, where two female farmers, a farm worker and six-month-old baby were kidnapped, yesterday said that some of his colleagues were running back to their country, Togo. The man, Mathin, said the farm workers, who are predominantly Togolese, were leaving Nigeria for Togo because police were arresting them.

Last Friday morning, gunmen invaded a farm settlement at Epe and abducted Mrs. Oluwatoyosi Aboderin, her sister’s six month-old baby, another female farmer, Mrs. Ogechi Maku, and a farm worker identified as Baba Togo.

    Landlords are kidnapped in one community, WOrRKERS kidnapped in another. Perhaps the time has come for the kidnappers to take over jobs and make sure the communities continue to function. I ask again, what is being done to protect people and property in this unbearable situation??

    We appear to be degenerating into anarchy and something needs to be done fast !!! Few rascals should not be allowed to hold the Nation to ransom !!!
