Police in Lagos State say their operatives have rescued the three abducted Fouani brothers.


Benjamin Hundeyin, the police spokesperson in the state, confirmed their release in a statement to journalists on Tuesday.

The three Fouani brothers, Abbas, Youssef, and Amtal Fouani, were abducted around 6 p.m. in Lagos on June 14.


Fouani Nigeria Ltd. specializes in electronics and is the sole distributor of LG, Hisense, and Maxi products in Nigeria.

According to a report, the three brothers were coming from their factory by boat when they were abducted.

However, the police said on Monday that they were working “tirelessly” to ensure that the victims were released.

Vanguard gathered that the victims, including the boat driver and his assistant, were released Monday night in Orugbo Iddo.

While confirming their release, Hundeyin said the feat was achieved by the Lagos Marine Police with support from the Navy.

Hundeyin said the victims have since been taken to their residence.

“They were rescued late last night in Orugbo, Iddo. Our marine police, with the support of the Nigerian Navy, brought them to shore,” Hundeyin said.
