According to reports from various newspapers, both women were kidnapped from a farm in Badeku, Ibadan, Oyo State.
The kidnappers demanded for N100 million for the release of the women while the Police say they are doing all they can to secure their release.
However, a young man on twitter @_Daminator has come out to appeal for donations towards raising the ransom demanded by the kidnappers.
The young man who says the women are his mother and aunt, revealed how they were Kidnapped.

Another source which happens to be the husband to one of the kidnapp victims, Kitolu Olukotun gave a more vivid account;
“My wife and sister-in-law went to the farm in the afternoon on Monday. Suddenly, the kidnappers emerged from the bush. According to one of my boys on the farm, they were six in number.
“They ransacked the vehicle probably looking for something. After that, they marched my wife and the sister-in-law through the bush path. When they called me, they demanded N100 million.
But, I told them I don’t have such money; I told them to accept N1million but they disagreed saying, where? They then refused to speak with me.
They have been threatening my wife. They insisted they would not take anything less than N20m.”
