The abducted landlords of Oshorun Estate in Isheri, along Lagos – Ibadan Expressway, have described their abductors as “aggrieved against the federal government.”
The landlords also said that the kidnappers merely vent their anger on the helpless residents of the community.
The three landlords and their physical trainer were, on Thursday, released by their abductors and reunited with their families late in the night.
There was wild jubilation in some of the estates in Isheri on Friday, as the residents gave thanks to God for their safe release.
One of the abducted landlords, Kennedy Uduagwu said that their abductors had blamed their action on what, they described as the negligence of the Niger Delta region by the federal government .
“They took us to their camp, but we did not know where it was because our eyes were tied with a cloth.
“They gave us food and mosquito nets to sleep under. They apologised for kidnaping us, that their action was to get the attention of the federal government who has neglected the Niger Deltans and their sufferings.
The newly – released landlord also said that their kidnapers “berated the federal government for their refusal to address their grievances.”
Mr Uduagwu also added that their kidnappers had a false impression that they are super rich landlords in the estates.
“They had a false impression that we were rich and influential, but when they realised that we are still hustlers, they became sober. I thank God we are safe and back home”.
