In a previous press meeting an earlier, the police command revealed the girls had an acquaintance with the prime suspect, Samuel Willis and he lured them with jobs and mobile phone.
Samuel promised the old two girls a secured and well-paying job as a bait whiles he promised to provide a mobile phone for the 3rd girl.

Despite the families of the girls paying the ransom, the kidnappers have refused to release the girls to their family. Already there is a social media campaign with the #BringBackOurTaadiGirls going viral on all the platforms.
