She said family members were shocked when the victims were not released two weeks after payment.

“We laboured hard to raise the money but our hope was dashed by the adamant nature of the kidnappers.

“The most painful aspect of it is that we have not been able to reach out to them on the telephone. The number the kidnappers used in reaching out to us had been switched off,” she said.
