Several parents gathered at the Government House in Alausa, Ikeja, demanding the authorities to seek the release of their children who were kidnapped on Wednesday from Lagos State Midel College, Igbonla, Epe.
Two weeks ago six male students were kidnapped under gunpoint from the school premises.
The parents in less than two dozen in number converged at 9 a.m. and the government official addressed to them after about an hour.
The mothers of kidnapped children were crying and shouting, praying the government to act fast.
Some of the parents said to the media that four out of six children are ill and they would not negotiate any further and also not allow them to speak with the boys.
One of the mothers said she want her son back and as she don’t have money to make her son study in some other school, she has admitted to this school.
The mother also added that she don’t have money either to pay to the kidnappers for the release of his 17-year-old son.
Another mother of student Judah urged the government to let the release be done today and don’t let their children die.
It is learned the kidnappers are demanding a ransom of N100 million.
One parent named Moruf Ramon said it is not possible for them to arrange N100,000 even together and the kidnappers have already rejected their request to accept J10 million.
It is also learned the kidnappers don’t want to negotiate with the parents any further and they are looking to have a talk with state government.
