This is as the parents had raised N11 million out of the initial N110 million demanded.

It would be recalled that the bandits had initially demanded N110million for the release of the children, threatening to kill them if the money was not paid.

The bandits got in touch with the parents Thursday evening informing them that the ransom had risen to N200million with the same threat of killing the pupils if the deadline is not met.

A parent, Malam Ali Muhammed, who has five children among the captives, confirmed the latest demand from the abductors.

Muhammed said, “the bandits are serious about killing our children if we cannot pay.

“We plead with the government to come to our assistance.”
