The Lagos Police Command has successfully rescued the three Fouani brothers, Abbas, Youssef, and Amtal, who were kidnapped on June 14 while returning from their factory by boat.

The brothers, who are associated with Fouani Nigeria Ltd, a major electronics company, were released late Monday night in Orugbo Iddo, along with their boat driver and assistant.

According to police spokesperson Benjamin Hundeyin, the successful rescue was made possible by the combined efforts of the Lagos Marine Police and the Nigerian Navy.

“They were rescued late last night in Orugbo Iddo. Our marine police, with the support of the Nigerian Navy, brought them to shore,” Hundeyin stated. “Thereafter, our tactical team in the area took them home on Banana Island in the early hours of today. Five of them were rescued: three Lebanese, the boat captain, and his assistant.”
