Six men suspected to be ritualists were arrested at Shogunle and Ladipo on Agege Motor Road near Oshodi in Lagos on Monday.
They were said to have been abducting passersby along the road and dragging them into the deep drainage along the road.
Eyewitnesses said they were caught while trying to drag a street sweeper into the drainage.
The woman’s shout for help attracted passersby and street boys in Shogunle to the scene.
They quickly mobilised to save the woman. Before they got to the scene, the suspected ritualists ran away through the drainage.
They were brought out and beaten before being handed over to the police.
The boys insisted that some of them were still inside the drainage. They chased them from Shogunle and caught two of them at Ladipo Bus Stop.
They were handed over to the military men after being beaten and stripped naked. (The Nation)
