Mozambique kidnap incident

Kidnappers abduct son of top Mozambican businessman

Unknown assailants in Mozambique have kidnapped Shelton Lalgy, the son of prominent Mozambican businessman Juneide Lalgy, near the capital, Maputo.

The abduction happened on Thursday morning as the victim was heading home after visiting the gym, police say.

As his car slowed to go over a speed bump, the attackers sprang out of a white Toyota Noah that had been following him.

According to the police, they ordered Juneide Lalgy out of his car, and bundled him into their own vehicle. So far there are no clues as to where they may have taken their victim, but the police are carrying out investigations.

Shelton Lalgy owns Transportes Lalgy, one of the largest road haulage companies in Mozambique, which operates throughout the country as well as the rest of the region.
