Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode yesterday asked the police to launch a manhunt for the kidnappers.
In a statement, Information and Strategy Commissioner Steve Ayorinde, said the governor urged the police to move “decisively and promptly” to arrest the kidnappers.
Ambode commiserated with the families of the slain security guards, saying the government is working with security agencies to ensure the victims release.
Ayorinde said: “A while ago, the police commissioner confirmed that police has commenced investigation as well as put in place necessary rescue operation to ensure the release of the victim.
“While the state government commiserates with the families of the three dead estate security guards, it will leave no stone unturned to ensure that lives and property of residents in the state are protected.”
