Kidnappers of Lagos School Girls Demand N200million Ransom


The kidnappers of three girls from Babington Macaulay Junior Seminary (BMJS) have demanded N200 million as ransom.

Timilehin Olisa, Tofunmi Popoolaniyan and Deborah Akinayo, all SS2 students were whisked away at about 9:30pm on Monday from their classroom while they were having prep.

Timilehin, it was learnt is the daughter of the State’s Anglican School Management Board.

It was learnt that the kidnappers contacted the father of one of the girls on Tuesday, demanding N200 million in exchange of the three students.

They were said to have gotten the number of the man they contacted from his daughter, and allegedly made it known that their target was the school.

It was learnt that the criminals’ first call to the man was ended abruptly and they called him again to pass their massage.

This development was said to have provoked an emergency meeting between the school’s management, victims’ parents and security agencies led by the Police Commissioner Fatai Owoseni, which lasted till the early hours of Wednesday.

Three other meetings were held between 11am and 4:15pm with the school authorities, the combat squads and heads of intelligence agencies.

However, it could not be ascertained if the school would negotiate with the kidnappers, although they were expecting their call at the time of filing this report.
