The Otun Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun, has appealed to the kidnappers of his five-year-old twins to release them.
He made the plea while speaking with the media on Saturday in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
We recall that two suspected kidnappers on Friday abducted the five-year-old twins with their mother in front of the Akobo, Ibadan home of the Otun Olubadan.
The mother was later released after driving them to an unknown location while they went away with the twins.
Balogun, speaking on the development; appealed to the kidnappers to bear with him as he does not have the ransom being requested.
He said, “The kidnappers initially demanded N100 million ransom and later reduced it to N40 million.
“I was able to offer them N5 million, which was rejected.
“The kidnappers should please bear with me and return my kids. I am ready to do anything that will make them happy.
“I don’t want to endanger the lives of my kids and I am not out to fight them because there is no reason for that,” he pleaded.
