Lagos school kidnapping: parents meet to raise ransom.

Lagos State Model College where six students were kidnapped.

Parents of the six pupils kidnapped from the Lagos State Model College, Igbonla in Epe, have decided to raise funds to meet the demands of the abductors, The Nation learnt yesterday.

The distraught parents met yesterday to brainstorm on how to raise the ransom for the release of their children.

The abductors want N100m, down from the N400m they first demanded.

They told the parents to seek Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s assistance in raising the funds.

The state government has already ruled out any negotiation with the kidnappers.

Yusuf Farouk, Ramon Isiaka, Pelumi Philips, Peter Jonas, Adebanjo George and Judah Agbaosi were whisked away from their hostels- Yellow and Green houses- on May 25, by gunmen clad in police uniform.

Sources said the parents met in Epe yesterday and resolved to tax themselves following government’s refusal to negotiate with the criminals.

The parents, who said they have become weary of government’s pledge to rescue the victims using security option, noted that their wards have been in captivity for nine days.
