A source privy to the situation told FIJ that the kidnappers demanded N6 million to release Damilola Dickson and N8 million for Ugwu Chukwuemeka, who are genetics and biotechnology department students.

Although FIJ's source at the school could not confirm the specific amount demanded by the kidnappers for Ojang bo Ebejin, a 200-level student of medicine and surgery, he did reveal that it was also in millions of naira.

“They (the kidnappers) are communicating with the parents of the students. I don’t know for certain the amount they want for the third student, but it’s also millions of naira,”
the source told FIJ.
