Speaking in a video that was published on twitter by Roots TV, one of the parents narrated the efforts they have put towards securing the release of their children. According to her, they have been to series of meetings as they try to get their children’s freedom. She recalls when Islamic cleric sheikh Gumi introduced them to one Ahmed who in turn invited a Fulani man for talks. After discussions with the man, they were able to put together the sum of N800,000 to give the man. They were shocked when he told them that the money was just for his transport before leaving.
