Uncertainty trails alleged release of sick abducted Lagos student

Uncertainties have continued to trail the alleged release of one of the abducted students of Lagos Model College in Igbonla-Epe.

There were reports that the family of the sick student had agreed with the abductors and had paid an undisclosed amount of money for his release .

The police in the state, however, insisted that they were not aware of the release of any of the abducted teachers and students.

There were reports on Tuesday that the family of the sick child were, as at evening, expecting a call from the kidnappers on where to go and pick the boy.

The family had reportedly paid some money to the abductors, after a plea to swap the sick boy with another person was rejected by the abductors.

A family member to one of the kidnapped students,  however, denied being aware of the release of the boy, though she said she was aware that the abductors had reduced the ransom.

Efforts to get the reaction of the image maker in charge of the state police command, Dolapo Badmos, failed as repeated calls to her mobile number  were not answered.

A senior police source at the state police command,  however, denied being aware of the release of any of the victims.

The police source said: “I am not aware of the release of any of them. If there is anything like that, they would have informed us.”
