The parents of the six pupils of Igbonla Model College, Epe, who were abducted by masked militants, on Wednesday stormed the office of the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode demanding the release of their children.
Looking weary and disconsolate, the parents called on the governor of Lagos State to hasten the release of their kids who have now been in the custody of their captors for 14 days.
On Tuesday, the kidnappers reportedly refused the sum of N6 million offered by the affected parents for the release of their kids, stating that that they would only accept the N100 million demanded from the government.
About six days ago, the kidnappers reached out to concerned parents informing them that the ransom for the release of their kids has been reduced from N600 million to N100m.
But thus far, only N6 million has been raised with the abductors threatening that they would only accept the N100 million demanded from the Lagos State Government.
