  • We are going to capture three pupils from senior school and three from junior school - Kidnappers Write Lagos School
  • There is palpable fear at the Lagos State Model
    College, Kankon, Badagry, as kidnappers have
    threatened to abduct some pupils and staff
    members of the school.
    It was learnt that the kidnappers sent two letters
    of the same content to the junior and senior
    sections of the college respectively.
    This is just as the daughter of a councillorship
    candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the
    Odi Olowo Local Council Development
    Association, Ilupeju, Bode Adeosun, was
    reportedly abducted.
    Punch Metro gathered yesterday that that the
    letters sent to Kankon were posted on the
    corridors leading to the offices of the two
    principals.
    In the letters sighted by Punch correspondent, the
    kidnappers claimed responsibility for the
    abduction of six pupils of the Lagos State Model
    College, Igbonla, Epe, who had spent 28 days in
    captivity.
    They vowed to abduct six pupils from Kankon, as
    well as the two principals of the college, boasting
    that nothing could stop them.
    A copy of the letters read, “Kidnappers are visiting
    the school the same way we did at Igbonla, Epe.
    We are going to capture three pupils from senior
    school and three from junior school. We are
    kidnapping both principals.
    “We are coming in two days’ time. No security
    put in place will stop us from gaining entry and
    fulfilling our mission as stated in this letter. Be
    expecting us!”
    Policemen and soldiers were said to have been
    deployed in the school.
    However, when the ultimatum given by the
    suspects elapsed, the security presence around
    the school reportedly reduced, which caused
    panic.
    Some parents, who spoke on condition of
    anonymity, said they had initially wanted to keep
    the threat secret, but decided otherwise due to the
    reduction in the number of operatives manning
    the school.
    One of the parents said he had visited his ailing
    son, who is in Junior Secondary School, on
    Saturday, June 10, when he saw one of the
    letters.
    “As I was passing by the principal’s office, I saw
    a notice and stopped to read it. I was shocked
    when I read the content. The principal was not
    around at that time, but I alerted some staff
    members present.
    “I informed the Parents Forum Association
    chairman, who contacted the school authorities.
    The government and security agencies had also
    been informed.
    “A large number of policemen and soldiers were
    initially deployed in the school. There were also
    security vans patrolling the school surroundings.
    “But when I went back four days after, the number
    of security men had reduced considerably. I saw
    only two policemen at the school gate.”
    Another parent said he was at the school on
    Wednesday (yesterday) to assess the security
    situation, but was disappointed, urging the
    government to take the threat seriously.
    He also lamented that the school fence was very
    low while there were bushes at the back of the
    premises, which could be exploited by the
    hoodlums.
    He said, “Part of the bushes had been cleared
    upon the threat, but there are still a lot to be
    done. The school fence needs to be raised. There
    should be light around the fence for safety at
    night.”
    A parent called for massive security around the
    school, saying some insiders could be aiding the
    hoodlums.
    “There is a Nigerian Air Force base near the
    school; the threat should not be taken for
    granted,” she added.
    The PFA Chairman, Mr. Wale Alo, said the case
    was reported at the Akpa Police Post and Area K
    Command, Badagry.
    He said, “We have been trying to beef up security.
    The state government sent policemen and military
    personnel. The school also employed some
    vigilantes to secure the school, especially at
    night. I learnt that the deputy governor is aware.
    Although the handwriting on the letters looks like
    that of a child, the content is beyond any pupil’s
    reasoning. The school is a little bit far from the
    waterside, but we must not leave anything to
    chance.”
    A member of staff of the college, who begged not
    to be named, said security was required in the
    school.
    He said, “It was the junior school that got the
    letter first. After three days, the same letter was
    dropped at the senior school. The school
    employed local vigilantes after the letter was
    received. They left after some days, saying the
    government did not appreciate their effort. They
    said if anything happened to them in the course of
    protecting the school, they could be abandoned.
    “These vigilantes are the ones really doing the
    work. In the middle of the night, they were around
    the hostels, hiding in the bush. Presently, two
    policemen are on duty per shift. Once it is 11pm,
    they go to sleep. However, five policemen patrol
    the road leading to the school every day.”
    The school authorities, however, described the
    letters as a rumour.
    One of the two principals, Mr. Sunday Fadaunsi,
    said, “We regard the letters as a rumour. Parents
    and pupils have been circulating it, but nobody
    can come up with any letter.”
    When asked about the security measures put in
    place in the school, he said, “the deputy governor
    is handling that.”
    The Lagos State Commissioner for Information
    and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, said the
    government was aware of the letter, adding that
    the security of the school, pupils and staff was
    guaranteed.
    He said, “We are aware and the security agencies
    are on high alert and alive to their responsibility.
    Whether it is a threat or a prank, the Lagos State
    Government will not yield any of its schools or
    pupils to the evil machinations of kidnappers. We
    shall secure our schools and every pupil and
    tutor. The police and other security agencies are
    up to the task. This is an assurance to the Model
    College, Kankon, and the general public.”
    The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer,
    ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, said the police had
    beefed up security in the school and other
    colleges in the coastal areas of the state.
    “There is intelligence report that these people
    (kidnappers) may perpetrate criminal acts at
    model colleges. The police are using proactive
    measures to fortify the schools, including Kankon,
    to prevent what happened in model college,
    Igbonla.
    “The Area Commander, Area K, said there is an
    adequate police presence at the school and there
    was no cause for alarm.”
    Meanwhile, the APC councillorship candidate’s
    daughter, Bukola Adeosun, was allegedly
    kidnapped around 9pm on Tuesday while she was
    sent on an errand to Shilon Street, Ilupeju, with
    her younger sister.
    Her father, Bode, said the abductors contacted
    him around 1.30am on Wednesday with a hidden
    number.
    He said “ Bukola, was sent on an errand with her
    younger sister, but only the little sister came
    back.
    “Around 1.39 am, we got a call from the
    kidnappers confirming that Bukola is in their
    custody.
    “I believe the kidnap of my daughter has some
    political undertone since local council election is
    coming up next week.”
    The state PPRO said a case of missing person
    was reported to the police.
    He said, “The family said she went to buy fish
    around 10pm, but she didn’t return. We are
    investigating. She is an adult.”
