Kidnappers of students, staff of Turkish Int'l Sch demand N1.2 billion as ransom

A group of unidentified kidnappers who stormed the Turkish International School, located in Isheri, a border town between Lagos and Ogun states, abducting two staff members and three students of the school are demanding the humongous sum of N1.2 billion as ransom.

Reports say the kidnappers called a family member of one of the victims on Sunday to make the demand.

According to the school authorities, the gunmen who gained entrance through the back fence of the school premises and escaped through the swamp, made away in a white Toyota Hilux vehicle.

Five staff members and three students of the school were kidnapped by the gunmen on Friday night as men of the Nigerian police are now on the trail of the kidnappers.

The Commissioner of Police, Ogun State Command has deployed the Anti-Kidnapping Unit, the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad as well as other police operatives to fish out the kidnappers even as a memo has been issued directing that the abducted persons must be rescued “unhurt”.
