Baale of Shangisha in Magodo, Lagos Mainland, Chief Mutiu Ogundare was on Wednesday abducted by three men along Center for Management Development (CMD) Road, Ikosi-Isheri Local Council Development Area (LCDA).

Ogundare was said to have received a telephone call from supposed developers, who had indicated interest in a landed property within his domain.

The callers had told the Baale where to meet them, prompting Ogundare to drive to the address with one of his brothers.

On getting to the location, the three men, it was gathered, appealed to the Baale and his brother to join them in their White Toyota Venza vehicle so that they could go check out the land.

But on their way, the Baale’s brother noticed that one of the men had a gun on him and he raised alarm.

Nation reports that the suspected kidnappers pushed him out of the vehicle and sped off with the Baale.

He then rushed to the police station to make a formal report.

Lagos Police PRO, Olarinde Famous-Cole, an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) said the incident was not really a kidnap but case of rivalry between two Baales.

He said there has been protracted dispute between Ogundare, one Shittu Lawal and another person.

“The White Venza had no registration number. They drove to CMD Guest House to meet the people who called that they wanted to check a land.

“It was there that they joined the suspect’s vehicle on appeal so that they could take them to the land.

“I cannot say if the Baale has regained freedom unless I receive additional information from the men in the field.”
