Abductors Of Lagos Students Demand N400m Ransom

Efforts to rescue the school children abducted last week from Lagos State Model College Igbonla Epe, turned bloody when nine of the policemen sent on the mission were shot and over 20 militants killed during a gun battle on the Ode Omi waterways in Ogun State. 

Sunday Sun also gathered that the militants, who abducted the students have demanded N400 million ransom before they would release them.
Three of the policemen were said to be still unconscious as at yesterday evening following the gunshot injuries they suffered during the combat last Friday. The nine were still undergoing medical treatment at the police hospital in Ikoyi, Lagos. 

It was also gathered that the militants, who were over 50, engaged the policemen in a serious fight which lasted over six hours. The source further said that over 20 militants were killed.
It was gathered that the abductors have opened negotiations with the parents of the abducted students.
A parent, who pleaded anonymity, confirmed that the abductors had finally contacted the parents of the abducted students.

He said: “We heard that the abductors called one of the parents and demanded for N400 million ransom. The negotiation is still on as they have not been able to contact the number since then but we are expecting further negotiations tomorrow.”

    1. This thing called kidnapping is real. You can only relate if it has happened to you. When my mum was kidnapped for almost 2 months we saw hell. No sleep for Us. They asked for 150m. It was horrible we ended up paying 6m and my mum is diabetic, pb patient oh. She was fed bread and water once a day. And this is someone that has partial stroke oh. May my God continue to punish them wherever they are.

    2. Kai, sorry about what your mum went through.

  2. say what ,meaning militants and boko haram are stronger than Nigerian government

    oh poor kids the trauma ,their parents oh this is too much pains

  3. And why would the police engage in gun battle with the abductors? What if they go extreme and decide to take out vengeance on the harmless children?
    Nigeria police ought to know negotiation works better when an enemy has gotten the best of you.
    May God keep the kids and reunite them happily with their parents.
    PS: the rate of abduction (particularly of students) is getting out of hand. Ambode should pay less attention to demolitions for now and respond to these ill menace head on.

  4. This is so sad..
    They should take soldiers to the place and bombard them??😲😲😲😲

    1. Confirm Ola soldiers go turn the place to ashes

    2. what about the safety of the children @Ola wealth?

  5. Jesu! Where will they get that kind of money from?

  6. What did those innocent kids do to deserve such traumatic experience? This militants are mad

  7. OMG. These guys are heartless!

  8. Iffa hear, how many times they don trace the kidnappers for kogi. The Nigerian police is just full of shit

  9. May God keep the kids safe...crazy world we live in.

  10. Where will they see that kind of money? Hhhhhhmmm

  11. They should just lace the money with a gps device,give them the money,collect the children,the get their asses rounded up after securing the children.

  12. No boarding school for my Children. Can't shoit

  13. Why they won't go n kidnap politicians that have embezzled money still baffles me. Those corrupt politicians can afford to pay ransome nau.

  14. Jesus! Were on earth 🌏 will the parents get 400 millions from? Lord have mercy

  15. When they paid huge ransom for chibok girls they set a bad precedence for other kidnap gangs.
    How about having military backups on such a mission?

  16. #Some people will never understand your life. That's okay. You're here to live your life, not to make everyone understand*

  17. Please dear Lord keep the children safe and return them to their parents, speedy recovery to the injured policemen. As for the kidnappers, no peace for the wicked.

    P. S. The security agents and the parents should please handle this situation with utmost care, this is very dicey. At times like this emotions run faster than common sense and rational thinking.
    My prayers with all those affected.

  18. May God protect the children & these wicked kidnappers be brought to justice
