Suspected kidnappers that abducted six students from the Igbonla Model college in Epe, Lagos state on May 25th, have written to staff of Lagos State Model College, Kankon, Badagry in Lagos state, threatening to kidnap some of their principals and students of the school.
According to reports, the letter was sent two weeks ago to the junior and secondary school principals.
It was pasted on the door leading to the administrative offices of both principals. The letters which contained the same message, read in part
“Kidnappers are visiting the school the same way we did at Igbonla, Epe. We are going to capture three pupils from senior school and three from junior school. We are kidnapping both principals. We are coming in two days time. No security put in place will stop us from gaining entry and fulfilling our mission as stated in this letter. Be expecting us”.
The school management called for security and there was maximum protection in the school.
However, the security reduced after the ultimatum given by the kidnappers elapsed causing Parents and students of the school to panic.
Meanwhile the state commissioner for Information, Steve Ayorinde, has confirmed that indeed a letter of such was received but however added that the state government is not certain it was a joke or not.
He added that efforts have been put in place to ensure the safety of the students in the school.
