Medical Doctor Kidnapped In Lagos

THERE was panic at the popular Saint Francis Hospital in Lagos late on Friday as gunmen kidnapped a doctor at the hospital.
.
It was gathered that the gunmen had reportedly stormed the hospital, situated around Keffi area of Ikoyi to abduct a foreign doctor.

.
The abducted doctor was simply identified as Yussuf Ajayi, who was said to be one of the medical personnel on duty.
.
A police source, who confirmed the abduction to the Sunday Tribune under the condition of anonymity, said no foreign doctor was abducted.
.
The police source said “there was really an abduction at the hospital late on Friday but I want to strongly disagree with you that a foreign doctor was abducted.”
.
He added that “five of them actually came and their mission was to abduct a foreign doctor. But when they could not, they resorted to kidnapping a Nigerian doctor.”
.
The police source also told the Sunday Tribune that the abductors were as of Saturday evening yet to contact the hospital for ransom negotiation.
.
The police in the state quickly mobilised operatives of the Rapid Response Squad and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad to the scene, but the gunmen had escaped with the doctor.
