The Otun Olubadan of Ibadan land, Lekan Balogun, says he is expecting his twins back home soon as the kidnappers have reduced the initial ransom of N40m to N10m.
Naija News learnt that the twins and their mother were abducted in Akobo area of Ibadan last week.
Their mother was then released while they held the twins hostage and demanded for a sum of N40m at the weekend.
Although he did not confirm if the ransom has been paid, Balogun said he was optimistic about his children’s release soon.
“I’m very much optimistic that my children will join the rest members of the family very soon by the special grace of God; and when they arrive, all of you will be in the know.
“I thank Nigerians, both at home and in the Diaspora, for the massive support my family received so far and which we are still receiving.
“My concern is to have my children back and I’m not bothered about any other question on the incident.
“I’m also grateful to the state government and once again, to the security agents for their efforts in ensuring the release of the kids; just as I want to thank my tormentors in advance for the care given to the innocent children.
“May anything called sorrow be far away from all of us.
“I will say more when the kids reunite with other family members,” he said.
