According to detectives, the kidnappers placed a N300 million ransom on each of the Turkish nationals and N100 million on each of the six other victims. Father to one of the kidnapped female students confirmed he has been contacted by the kidnappers but pleaded that his name and family should be protected, considering the delicate nature of the case.
The abductors of students and employees of the Nigerian Turkish International College (NTIC) Isheri, Ogun State, are demanding the sum of N1.2 billion ransom for the victims to be released.
The gunmen invaded the school last Friday night and abducted eight people, including two Junior Secondary School (JSS) students, one Senior Secondary School (SSS) students, two Turkish employees and three Nigerian workers.
They reportedly dug through the school fence and entered through the back door. The victims were taken away in a white Toyota Hilux vehicle.
