Hi

Connect it to any computer with itunes. Hold down the power button and home button at the same time. Once the screen turns black let go of power button and keep holding the home button for another 10 seconds. Your iTunes will detect a device in recovery mode. Hit restore and you should be set. Please be aware this will erase all data in your iPad and will require apple id and password when the restore is finished.

Yes this might work but I am scared to do this because this iPad has been in cold storage for 2 years and it has a lot of important things in it so can I recover the data? Also the iPad is not being detected in iTunes

There’s no easy way to remove it unfortunately - if it was that easy we’d have stolen iOS devices all over the market.

Your only option really is to restore it…
