Security officials have again uncovered a kidnap den in the heart of Ojokoro axis of Lagos. At the moment, over 5000 persons are gathered around a drainage tunnel turned a haven for evil incarnates, busy whisking whole-bodied individuals away for God knows what purpose.

According to eyewitness accounts, a street sweeper who alerted passersby about the development stated that she heard a voice in the tunnel crying for help while going about her daily official duty.

Many of the security agents who made an early call at the scene of the gory tale were unable to access the tunnel earlier today. After much hassle, however, one of the suspects was seized by irate youths in the area and burnt.

At least ten more suspected kidnappers have been apprehended by the security operatives from the site now, besides the individual who was set ablaze earlier today.

The burnt suspect, according to a report by a Mr. Tunji Adeleke, was prodded to reveal the secret about the den but was said to have refused saying that he would rather die than make any revelation about it.

Heavy gridlock has since built up in the axis, with movement around the area greatly hampered.
