After speaking with the girl’s parents on Tuesday night, the bandits reduced their demand to N1.7 million from N2 million.

They allegedly asked the parents of the abducted girl, Deborah, to pay N1 million in cash and purchase a motorcycle for them for N750,000.

Theresa, the woman’s aunt said; 

“These people are asking for N1 million ransom, buy a bike worth about 750,000 and pay the person that would come to collect the cash, or else they would marry her off to one of them.

“For over an hour they were on the phone and my brother was begging them, he was crying.”
