Since you have the passphrase, then there is nothing you can do but what I am surprised about is the fact that blockchain.info asking for private key when they don't provide one because everything they do is just the passphrase and I expect that you should have uncontrolled access since you have done that already.

However, there is a way to get the private key though an external way, I have not used it before but several others have used it so that's a disclaimer

Thank you for your reply. I have the 17 word passphrase but when i enter it on bip39-master/bip39-standalone.html, it does not work.

Any alternative to this?
