release her. They said we should pay N18m, later they reduced it to
N500, 000 and at another time, they said we should pay any amount.
we begged them, they said if we don’t pay the money, she will work for
the money. We don’t know what they mean by that, whether they want to
turn her into a prostitute. A J.S.S. 3 girl that has just registered for
her final junior exams, what does she know?People have abandoned us
because of this incident and we are so confused.”
