Nigerian government ‘not doing enough to free kidnapped Lagos children’

The Nigerian authorities are not doing enough to secure the release of six children who were abducted from their secondary school in Lagos, says a parent who spoke to the BBC on condition of anonymity.

The authorities at federal and state level are also accused of being evasive and elusive.

The parent added that he had not yet met Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

The children were kidnapped towards the end of May. Their abductors are demanding a ransom of around $30,000 (£25,000) which the parents say they cannot afford.

They denied local media reports that they are trying to raise the ransom themselves
