Bandits free 15 more abducted Bethel Baptist students in Kaduna

Bandits have released another set of 15 of 80 remaining abducted students of Bethel Baptist High School, Damishi, Kaduna.

This was confirmed to newsmen by the Chairman of the Kaduna state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Joseph Hayab, on Sunday.

According to him, “15 of the students were released on Saturday night, remaining 65 of them with the bandits.”

He added that there would be no ceremony about reuniting the children with their parents as the parents of those released will pick their children and go.

Okay.ng had reported how the bandits invaded the school located some few kilometres away from Kaduna metropolis and abducted 121 students.

The kidnappers had said that the students would be released in batches when they freed the first batch of 28 on July 25, 2021, after they were said to have collected a ransom of N100m.

After the release of the 28 students in July, the bandits were said to have demanded for another N80m for the release of the remaining 80 students.

It was learnt that an undisclosed amount of money was paid before the 15 students were freed.
