Parents of kidnapped pupils of the Lagos State Model College, Igbonla, Epe, stormed the office of Lagos state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, early Wednesday morning to press the government to be more proactive towards the release of their children, Punch reports.
The children were kidnapped from their school by armed men two weeks ago.
The abductors rejected the parent’s ₦6 million ransom, demand that the government pay them ₦100 million instead.
Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Olarinde Famous-Cole, said the police were working tactically to rescue the six abducted pupils of.
Cole said 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, because although we know the general area where the kidnappers are, we can’t storm in.”
