Glo X-factor contestants kidnapped by armed men

26 April 2016, 21:56

Lagos - Blair and Clinton Roberts, aka DNA Twins, who both participated in the Glo X factor competition have been kidnapped.

The twins, 20, were taken on their way to Lagos from Abuja where they had been staying with their mother.

The kidnap occurred about two and half hours after the journey began, when the bus was reportedly stopped by men dressed in army uniforms.

The men hit the driver, shot at the bus windscreen as a show of intent, and ordered the passengers to all alight. The bandits proceeded to rob every passenger in the bus, and afterwards ordered them to run into the bus.

After all the passengers all returned to the bus, it was discovered that the twins did not return.

The kidnappers however called their father on the phone and demanded for a N6million ransom, which was later increased to #10million. He further threatened that if the sum wasn't paid by today they would kill the boys.

In the aftermath of the kidnap, MI Abaga, who is a judge on X-factor, has pleaded for their return with a tweet, wherein he used the hashtag #SaveDNA.
