“I told them the victims are just strugglers. They can’t even boast of N20,000 in their accounts. There is no way we can even raise N1 million for their release. 

“So, I try to make them understand to release them unconditionally. Since then we’ve been working with the State Security Service, giving them the necessary information.

“The Police also are trying their best, even the local government chairman, our assemble man, our kings are all also trying their best. I am also confident that the police will do their job for a positive result.”
