The kidnappers demanded a ransom of N60 million to secure their release. However, due to their inability to raise the money, Michelle was gruesomely murdered, and her body was dumped at Ida, near Ushafa in Bwari Area Council.

Taking to Facebook on April 15, Mr. Ariyo, an alumnus of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA) who hails from Ekiti State, opened up for the first time since the tragic incident.

The bereaved father shared lovely photos of his daughter and wrote,

“Happy Posthumous 14th Birthday to you my adorable and priceless daughter, Michelle Ayomide Ariyo.

“We had a plan for this day which prompted us to buy numerous clothes/dresses and shoes for today’s birthday photoshoot during 2023 Christmas.

“Painfully your plans, dreams and ambition was mysteriously terminated by the kidnappers who murdered you on Friday 12th January, 2024, after kidnapping you along side with your siblings and Mum on the 7th January, 2024.

“My angel, to say we (parents and siblings) missed you, it’s an understatement, because it’s extremely hard to bid you farewell. Your memories will forever live in our hearts.

Alas, we took solace in the fact that you’re resting at the bosom of the Lord, your creator, where you will not be kidnapped again. Rest on my jewel of inestimable value.”
