28 extra kidnapped college students of the Bethel Baptist Secondary School in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State have been rescued, Police said.

The scholars have been discovered inside the Tsoho Gaya Forest in Chikun LGA of the state within the early hours of Sunday.

It isn’t clear whether or not the bandits discharged the children for ransom or they were saved by safety detectives or fled by themselves.

Three of the students had been regained by police operatives some days in the past at a location in ame Chikun and were later taken to a police medical facility for medical examinations.

One hundred and twenty-one college students of Bethel Baptist secondary school in Chikun of Kaduna state had been kidnapped from their accommodations by bandits on July 8.

The raiders later requested a ransom of ₦60 million for the discharge of the students.

However, the security agents are yet to apprehend any of the criminals behind this seemingly daily abduction witnessed in the Northern part of the country.

Nigerians have expressed worries about how a group of people would take hold of hundreds of schools children in a Bush yet no tracking device gets to them.

This is coming hours ago the communication minister, Isa Pantami extends linking of National Identification Number with Sim Card to two months.

The SIM-NIN upgrade is geared towards curbing increased insurgency in the country particularly in Northern Nigeria. Hence, the registration seems to have aided only in tracking and arresting agitators, Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho.
