Nigerians, please pray! Parents of ‘the kidnapped pretty sisters’ cry out!

A relative, Mr. Amade Opaluwa, said the
family had not left a stone unturned to make sure that the victims
return home safe and sound, but added that the kidnappers seemed
unwilling to negotiate the ransom.
Amade, who is an uncle to the abducted
sisters, told PUNCH on Sunday that the
kidnappers were becoming impatient and harsh in their discussions with
the family.
He said, “The kidnappers have become
very harsh lately in their conversations with the family. They are still
insisting on the N150m ransom. Unfortunately, they do not allow us to
talk to the girls. And also, we are not able to call them on the
telephones, only they can call us.”

He called on Nigerians to intensify
prayers on behalf of the family for the safe release of their daughters,
adding that the family was also relying on God’s intervention.
“I use this opportunity to appeal to all
Nigerians to help us with prayer. What we need is constant prayers for
the safe release of our sisters. Everybody is getting increasingly
worried,” Amade said.
The two sisters, Ejura and Unekwu Opaluwa, who
were 23 and 19 years respectively, were kidnapped in the evening of
Sunday, June 8.
The victims’ father, Samson, is a director of the Federal Ministry of Work.
The suspected gunmen had made away with
the two ladies after they had raided the entire house and dispossessed
the family of their valuables.
The attackers were said to have left
with the two girls when they did not get as much money as they expected.
The family had reported the case at the Life Camp Police Division in
Abuja.
When contacted, the Abuja Police Public
Relations Officer, Altine Daniel, said the police were still going on
with their investigations.
“Like I told you, we are still working on it. And if there are any updates, we will let you know,” she said.
