Kidnappers of Lagos pupils reject N6m ransom



Meanwhile, with no end in sight for the release of the six students, the Nigerian Navy
yesterday said they were teaming up with the police to effect the release of the boys.
The navy’s collaboration is coming on the heels of the relocation of the abducted students from the kidnapper’s initial hideout within Lagos creeks to another hideout around the Ondo creeks.
The relocation was carried out after operatives of the Inspector General of Police Investigation Response Team (IRT) arrested three members of the gang identified as Egelu Endurance aka Jubby, Stanley Yomi Irabomini aka Powei and Bentel Endurance.
A police source who spoke on anonymity said the collaboration of the navy was much needed because the efforts of the police were being thwarted by the non-navigable terrain of the creeks.
“After we made the arrests, the kidnappers moved the students farther into the creeks, where our boats from the Marine police cannot penetrate. For that terrain, which is ridden with thick bushes and foliages, what we need is swarm buggies and flat boats. As it is now, we are frustrated at every turn because although we know the general area where the kidnappers are, we can’t storm in.”
Last Saturday, one of the parents who took N2 million to a designated point at Odongunyan, ended up not seeing anyone as the caller kept changing the collection point.
The kidnappers had given parents of the abducted students Tuesday last week as deadline for payment of N20 million as ransom for the release of each student, threatening to relocate them if their demand was not met.
However, the kidnappers later asked the parents to prevail on the Lagos State government to pay a ransom of N100 million for all six students, a demand that is yet to be met.
