In a shocking incident, a prominent businessman and distributor of electronic goods in Fouani Group Nigeria, Mohamed Fouani, was kidnapped along with at least two others in Ikoyi, Lagos, on Friday. According to sources familiar with the matter, the group was ambushed near Falomo Bridge.

The victims, who are associated with Fouani Group, a major distributor of LG and Hisense products in Nigeria, are currently being held captive by their abductors. The group has made contact with people close to the victims, demanding a ransom of $1.5 million.

The Lagos police command has launched an investigation into the incident, but officials have yet to confirm the details of the attack. A police source indicated that the incident is likely to cause concern within the command, which has previously claimed to have effectively curbed kidnap-for-ransom activities in the state.
