The Lagos State Police Command has arrested six Bureaux de Change personnel for the alleged kidnapping of an eight-year-old child.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the command’s spokesman, confirmed the arrest on Tuesday via his verified Twitter account, which was monitored by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Hundeyin stated that the suspects conspired to abduct their colleague’s child.

“The child, whose hands and feet were bound in a sack, was released three days later.
