Rescued Lagos students: Kidnappers made them wore football jerseys to deceive security




6 rescued lagos student: Kidnappers made them wore sport to deceive security

A parents of one of the kidnapped 6 boys of Lagos State Model College, Igbonla, Epe, that have rescued said the kidnappers forced football jerseys on the student so as to fake their identity so that security operatives will not be able to apprehend the kidnappers.

The students, who were abducted from their school premises‎, were freed this week after 64 days in captivity.

Curiously, all the boys were in apparently fake jerseys of big European clubs: Barcelona, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United.

One of the parents who spoke on the condition of anonymity told that the kidnappers initially made the pupils wear football jerseys in order to deceive security operatives who were closing in on the criminals.

“I just want to thank God he is back home now,” the relieved father said.

“I don’t want to say anything in the media now and we were also warned not to grant interviews.

“My son told me that it was those kidnappers who bought the jerseys for them.

“I was initially surprised when he came back putting on a jersey because my son is not really a football fan and he barely shows love for these European clubs.

“Clothing the boys in jerseys was a plan to deceive the security operatives each time the kidnappers changed their location, my son told me when I had a chat with him.”

The parent also revealed that his son and the five other pupils will be visiting a top hospital in Lagos for further check-ups facilitated by the Lagos State government.

“He is not really himself yet but I’m sure with time he will recover totally,” the father added.
