A kidnapper housegirl who abducted a family’s three kids the day after she was hired is demanding N13 million for the release of the kids.
The father, Leke Orekoya, revealed in an interview with Punch, that the kidnappers had lowered their ransom from N15 million to N13 million.
“They said we should produce the money in 24 hours or they would ‘delete’ our kids.Our major concern is our 11 months old baby who needs extra care.”
“I called the line of the nanny and a man picked the call. He initially demanded N15m, but after I begged him, he agreed to take N13m.
“We have been exchanging text messages and he has insisted on N13m. He has also assured us that we have no other option than to pay the money.
“I spoke with the children and they said the kidnappers were treating them well and that they were doing fine. I’m sure if they get the money today, they will release my children to me. All they need is the money.
“I appeal to the government, politicians in the country, Nigerians of goodwill to please help us before it is too late. After my children have been released to me, the police can then begin their investigation.”
