Gunmen have kidnapped a prominent Lagos-based lawyer and social critic in southern Nigeria in an apparent ransom bid, a colleague and police said Saturday.
"I have just received with shock, the news of the kidnap of my learned friend and brother, Chief Mike Ozekhome...," Festus Keyamo, a lawyer, said in a statement.
Keyamo could not immediately say when exactly Ozekhome was abducted.
However, he described the incident as "one kidnap too many and it further draws local and international attention to the poor state of security in our country."
