After some days, Bolanle’s father called her handset to find out what the problem was, but her phone was switched off. For days the family tried calling her hoping it was a network problem, or probably at the worse maybe her phone was stolen.

When they couldn’t rich Bolanle for a week, the father decided to visit her bank to see if any withdrawals have been made on her account, to his shock over N200, 000 had been withdrawn from the account.

Otunba went to his bank the next day to make a withdrawal of N20 million to be paid to the kidnappers for the release of his daughter.

While helping him put the money in his car, the security man noticed the chief was nervous and persuaded him to tell him what the problem is. Otunba confided in him and told him about the kidnappers.

The security man advised Otunba to go ahead with the plan and do whatever the kidnappers asked him to do, but promised help him.

With the N20 million in his car he went as instructed by the kidnappers and left the car with the money at a deserted place where he was instructed to leave the car. After a while someone came and took the car away. By the time Otunba got back home, his daughter had been released by the kidnappers.

As the family jubilates over the safe arrival of Bolanle, Otunba received a call from the security man who had earlier promised to help out. He informed him that the kidnappers had been arrested.

Shortly, policemen arrived and the entire family was invited to the police station. On arrival the Divisional Police Officer brought the kidnappers to Otunba; the both kidnappers live in the same estate where the chief lived and one of them was Bolane’s boyfriend.
