Speaking with newsmen, the Director of Media and Communications of the Ondo Catholic Diocese, Rev. Fr. Leo Aregbesola, confirmed that the abductors had called and demanded for the N100 million as ransom.

He said, “I was told from their parish today that the abductors have contacted the church and they were demanding a ransom of N100m. That is the latest development for now. They have not been released.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer PPRO, Mr Femi Joseph, said the state commissioner of police had ordered the men of the command to go after the hoodlums. He said, “We have moved-in our men to go after the bandits. In this type of operation, we are being very careful because we want a situation that the victims would be rescued unhurt. So we are working on it.”
