Bandits releases video of Kaduna students 47 days after abduction
Once more, raiders, who kidnapped the 39 students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, Kaduna, have released one other footage of the abductees of the school.
The criminals had immediately after the kidnapping of the scholars on March 11, 2021, published a clip of the victims and requested N500 million as a ransom for their freedom.
Out of the 39 college students, ten had to this point been freed, the remaining 29 of them.
However, as a result of the policy of the governor, Nasir El-Rufai government in opposition to the payment of ransom or negotiation with abductors had made the bandits now negotiate with the parents directly.
Within the newest video, a pregnant student merely recognized as “Hajiya” implored along with her dad and mom for return, adding that for days, they’ve been without meals.
She added that they’ve been with the kidnappers for the past 47 days.
Hajiya mentioned, “We attraction to our parents to help us. We’re tired and there is no food. They should do their best to get us out of this place. We’ve spent 47 days, almost all of us are ill and there’s no food. We sleep in the open even when it rains.”
Additionally, one other lady kidnapped by the bandits said to be a wife of a Naval Officer, appeared in the video.
The lady said to have been kidnapped from Trikaniya within the Chikun LGA of the state, stated her spouse is an army officer primarily based in Warri, Delta State
She too begged the Federal Authorities to come for their rescue, noting that the criminals had earlier conceded on N30 million as a ransom for their release.
