20-year old twins Blaire and Clinton Roberts were on their way to Lagos from Abuja after spending some time with their mother. Barely two hours into their journey, the vehicle which they boarded was attacked by unknown gunmen who robbed the passengers before taking the twins away.

According to reports the men who attacked them were dressed in army uniforms and the passengers thought their bus was stopped as part of  “checkpoint procedures”. The robbers went on to hit the driver, shoot the bus’ windscreen before they ordered all passengers to alight.

They were allowed to return to the bus after they were stripped of their valuables. It was not until then that they discovered that the twins did not return, and they have not been seen or heard from since then.

According to reports, the kidnappers have since called their father on the phone and made demands for a N6million ransom, which was later increased to N10million with threats to kill the boys if the ransom is not paid today.

The twins are a singing duo called DNA Twins and were contestants on Glo X Factor Season 2. They are also currently competing in “The Voice Nigeria”.

Artistes like M.I (who was a judge on the show), Dice Ailes among others have come out to plead for information needed for their safe return.

Their elder brother, Quincy first raised the alarm via Twitter.

Then M.I joined in to spread the word:

    Kidnapping on the rise, fuel scarcity seem unending, insufficient electricity, poverty on the increase, accidents due to bad state of our roads and some deaths caused due to poor medical attention & facilities, Fulani herdsmen killing in their hundreds. No value for lives! We have a government. We have leaders. What’s really happening? It’s high time we did something about all this.

    What can one say/do in situations like this? God alone can help now. To the family, i’d say with shamefacedness (if there is any word like that)- the security agencies may help you but it is a ding-dong affair with no certainty of success because they are probably not well equipped to give their best in situations like this. Please negotiate on the release of your brothers. Offer what you can while praying and DISCREETLY working with the security agencies. With your brothers’ talent, God will help you recover whatever you lose, if you do lose.
    May God intervene in this case and the numerous other cases that are rife now but not reported because the victims have no platform to report on.
