The kidnapped Kaduna students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka in Kaduna State, have been released by their abductors after having spent at least 56 days in captivity.
Their release was confirmed by the Chairman of the forum of the abducted parents, Malam Abdullahi Usman to journalists on Wednesday.
According to Usman, “I can authoritatively tell you that 29 students have currently been released and on their way from the forest as we speak”.
39 students were abducted on March 11 by the bandits who invaded the school located in Afaka along Kaduna International Airport Road. The bandits demanded N500 million as a ransom for their release. However, ten of the 39 abducted students were earlier released by their abductors in two batches of five each.
