Family of abducted sick Lagos schoolboy pays N1m ransom

The family of one of the four pupils of Lagos Junior Model College, Igbonla, Epe, Lagos State, who was reported to have fallen sick in kidnappers’ den, paid N1m ransom on Tuesday.




A source close to the family, who confirmed the development to PUNCH Metro, said the family expected the boy to be released.
The victims, who comprised four pupils –Okonkwo Emmanuel, Isaac Adebisi, Abu and Jeremiah – an English Language/Civic Education teacher, Lukman Oyerinde, and the Vice-Principal, A.O. Oyesola, were kidnapped on Thursday.

The attackers on Thursday, October 6, at about 8am, stormed the school premises while the junior school was rounding off the morning prayers.

Punch had reported that the assailants, from Friday to Sunday, continued to call the families of the victims to negotiate the ransoms from N5m to N3.5m and then to N1m for each victim.

The gunmen on Saturday had also fired a warning gunshot on the telephone, while ordering the family of one of the victims to hasten on the ransom.
On Sunday, they had called again to inform the family of the schoolboy that their son had fallen sick.

PUNCH Metro had reported on Tuesday that the kidnappers had called the family that the pupil’s health had deteriorated, adding that his ransom had to be paid urgently.
It was learnt on Tuesday that the family of the schoolboy, who fell sick in the kidnappers’ hideout, had taken N1m to a place of agreement.

The place was not disclosed 
.
The source told punch that the family members were awaiting the return of the schoolboy.
She said, “The ransom was paid on Tuesday. But he has not been released. There is a rumour that he will be back tomorrow (Wednesday). The family members paid N1m ransom. They took the money to the agreed location which was not disclosed as ordered by the gunmen.
“The relations had earlier offered a swap of the sick boy with a relation, begging the kidnappers that they were concerned about his deteriorating health, but the kidnappers had declined the offer.”


Punch learnt from another source that the victims in the kidnappers’ hideout were more than the four pupils, the teacher and the VP, as three other residents in the Ikorodu and Epe areas were reportedly abducted on Friday and Saturday.

The security operatives should fish out these unscrupulous elements already. If this issue of abductions and kidnappings were addressed earlier enough it wouldn't have degenerated to what it is today. The Ransome paid should aid the security operatives on how to apprehend the criminals.
I sincerely hope he will be released before his medical conditions is worsened.
No one and no place is safe in Nigeria anymore...such a pity.

Now this is serious.
My heart and prayers goes out to the poor boy and everyone in their custody. May we all not be victims of human error
I know some will blame government for this but stuff like this happens in developed countries as well, difference is they will fish their location out and send them all to jail

The difference is that over there,they go extra miles to rescue this people and ensure it does not happen again. But here our police stands by the corner and ensure that the ransome is being paid,and that this people continue in their crime.
Police are paid to ensure security and not to sit down in their offices doing nothing.

TRIUMPHANT ZION said...

Amen.

They go extra miles to rescue is very correct but ensuring it doesn't happen again? If indeed that can been ensured it wouldn't happen anymore in other countries. The heart of man is wicked, Nigerians can use the system as an excuse for evil but other countries have such people who they believe is either influenced by drugs, emotional or psychological trauma.
