Epe: Parents of abducted students of Lagos model school, stage protest
Parents and relatives of the six male students of the Igbonla Model School in Igbonla, Epe Lagos state, yesterday staged a protest at the Lagos state government house in Ikeja.
Weeping mothers of the students called on the state government to intensify efforts towards the rescue of their wards.
The six male students namely Pelumi Philips, Farouq Yusuf, Isiaq Rahmon, Adebayo George, Judah Agbausi and Peter Jonah, were abducted on Thursday, May 25th. One of the mothers, Mrs Toyin Philips, said
“I want my son back. I sent my son to the school because there was no money. If I had the money they are demanding for, would I have sent my son to that school? We are the one negotiating with the kidnappers.
Another mother, Mrs Agbaosi whose son, Judah, was also kidnapped, said
“The kidnappers said they wanted N100 million. Government, please, don’t let our children die. Let their release be done today,”
