Richard Amuwa, a Lagos-based security consultant Monday  accused criminal groups from the Niger Delta region of being behind the spate of kidnappings in various parts of Lagos I recent times.

Amuwa, who spoke during a television interview monitored by Independent in the wake of the kidnapping of some persons in Isheri in Lagos state, said it was the handiwork of groups from some Niger Delta states who come to Lagos and whisk away their victims through the sea.

His words: “The kidnappers are from the Niger Delta and they are taking advantage of the fact that Lagos is accessible to Niger Delta by sea while there is hardly any form of sea patrol, so it has become an easy kidnapping route for them.”

To further buttress his claims, he said “there was also a case where a man was kidnapped from Lagos and driven straight to Warri in Delta State.”
