“Kidnappers have demanded N14 million as ransom to release two out of three University of Calabar students taken from hostel.”

It was learned that the gunmen contacted the families of the victims and informed them of their demands.

A group of gunmen who abducted three students of the University of Calabar (UNICAL) on Thursday, March 28, have demanded N14 million to release two, FIJ has learned.

It was learned that the gunmen contacted the families of the victims and informed them of their demands.

A source privy to the situation told FIJ that the kidnappers demanded N6 million to release Damilola Dickson and N8 million for Ugwu Chukwuemeka, who are genetics and biotechnology department students.

Although FIJ’s source at the school could not confirm the specific amount demanded by the kidnappers for Ojang bo Ebejin, a 200-level student of medicine and surgery, he did reveal that it was also in millions of naira.

“They (the kidnappers) are communicating with the parents of the students. I don’t know for certain the amount they want for the third student, but it’s also millions of naira,” the source told FIJ.

SaharaReporters on April 1 reported how some gunmen had kidnapped three medical students of the University at one of its hostels.
