According to reports, the woman’s health took a twist after the girls were not freed yesterday morning as allegedly expected. She was said to have placed much hope in pledges by security agencies to rescue them yesterday.

The source added that she had also been fasting since the girls were kidnapped, adding that the kidnappers are still insisting on N10 million and they have refused all pleas to accept the one million Naira the family has raised.

When contacted, the Lagos State Police command’s spokesperson, Dolapo Badmos, a Superintendent of Police said she was not aware of the collapse.

“That information is not at my disposal, but the police has intensified their efforts to rescue the girls and we are hopeful the girls would soon be reunited with their loved ones,” the spokesperson said.
