Residents of Igbodu community in the Epe area of Lagos State were reportedly jolted by a gun duel between some suspected kidnappers and men of the Nigeria Police.
The incident was said to have happened in the early hours of Tuesday.
It was gathered from a police source that the suspects opened fire on a team of policemen who were said to be on patrol along the Epe axis.
An eyewitness was reported by Channels Television to have said that the gun battle broke out after some of the kidnap victims escaped when they noticed that six of the gang members had left the camp, leaving only two of them, whom they later overpowered.
