The abducted students of Lagos state Model College, Igbo Nla, in Epe area, have been currently relocated and camped in Imobi creek between Lagos and Ogun State. This is happening as security operatives intensify efforts to rescue the students.
Apart from the six students, eight other unidentified persons were picked on the same night. Although the kidnappers are yet to get in touch with families of the victims or the school as at press time, it was gathered that the raid was led by the current militant commander popularly called ‘America’.
‘America’ unleashed his boys on the neighbouring communities around the creeks. They visited banks in the Island and schools, which the dead leader Ossy Ibori had penciled down for attack. He divided his boys into three and unleashed them on Epe community while he waited in the boat.
As soon as the students and several others were brought to the boat, he discovered that the boat was sinking and could not carry the number of persons abducted, due to size and an engine fault.
He ordered his boys to keep them in the bush pending when he would return with another boat. They thereafter left them in that bush at Obalaye junction, near Sagamu till 9pm same Thursday when ‘America’ came with a bigger boat and ferried them to another location.
