Bandits have released 15 more students of Bethel Baptist High School, Damishi, Kaduna state from captivity, DAILY GIST has learnt
Chairman of the Kaduna state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Joseph Hayab confirmed their release in a statement on Sunday.
The students who regained their freedom in the early hours of Sunday were among the 121 students abducted on July 8 at the school premises.
Joseph said the freed students would be reunited with their family members at the school premises later on Sunday.
He noted that the remaining students still in captivity are now 65.
At the time of filing this report, DAILY GIST could not ascertain whether a ransom was paid for the release of the students, even though the bandits had demanded N80 million as ransom.
The abduction of the 121 students of the Bethel Baptist Secondary School in Kaduna State is one of the growing cases of abductions, not only in Kaduna State but also across other parts of the country.
The kidnappings and killings have continued in the country despite the efforts of security agencies.
