These are just some of the claims regarding the alleged drama that began on October 20 when a car transporting Zia (15), Alaan (13), Zayyad (11) and Zidan Moti (seven) was stopped by heavily armed men, who fired warning shots into the air before snatching the boys.

The kidnapping made headlines after the assailants demanded a ransom of R50 million. However, after the parents had paid the ransom, details of what really happened have been kept under wraps.
