In a twist from the planned release of the over forty abducted students and workers of Government Science College, Kagara, Niger State, the kidnappers have threatened to starve and kill them if there is further delay in paying the ransom.
The threat was revealed in an audio recording where the criminal gang rejected the N2.7 million offer for Ransome.
A voice identified as that of a top member of the gang was interpreted saying, “I don’t have food for them. If anybody dies among them, we will tell you where to go and pick the corpse.
The kidnappers in the audio also reacted to what it called heavy deployment of security in Kagara, vowing they would not succeed in rescuing the abductees.
