Families Of Abducted Lagos Pupils Have Been Given A 48-Hour Ultimatum As One The Children Falls Ill.

5 days after the abduction of four pupils, a teacher and a vice-principal of Lagos Junior Model College, Igbonla, Epe, Lagos State, the kidnappers have given their families 48 hours to pay the ransoms placed on them, Punchng report.

This is just as the abductors told the families on Monday that the health condition of the schoolboy, reported to be sick, had worsened. The ransoms demanded for the six victims had also been reduced to N6m.

A source said the kidnappers gave them a 48-hour ultimatum to pay, as the condition of the sick schoolboy had worsened. He said,

“The boy’s family have been able to raise some money and they were begging the gunmen to accept what they had. I hope the kidnappers will have mercy and consider the condition of the sick pupil, and let him go.”

Another source, close to the family of one of the victims, said the family members had raised three-quarter of the ransom, adding that the money was not sourced from the government. The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, however, said that rescue operation was in progress.
