Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, has relocated to Ikorodu efforts to locate the three schoolgirls abducted last Monday night. Owoseni, who was leading the police rescue team had visited Ikorodu almost everyday since the girls were abducted.
A source told the Sunday Tribune that there were times when the police boss remained in Ikorodu till the early hours of the following day. As of late Friday night, the Lagos police boss was still strategising on how to rescue the schoolgirls.
“You know that the CP is leading the rescue team. There is hardly any day that he did not go to Ikorodu since those girls were kidnapped,” a source said.
Meanwhile, another source at the girls’ school who pleaded anonymity said that there were plans to pay the ransom if the girls were not rescued in the next few days. The source also said that the parents are worried, particularly with the reports that one of the schoolgirls was sick.
The image-maker of the state police command, Dolapo Badmus, denied that the police were aware of any plan to pay ransom. She stated that the police were working on the rescue of the girls and assured that they would be reunited with their families very soon.
