Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria(CAN) in Kaduna state, Mr Joseph Hayab, has confirmed the release of thirty two Baptist students abducted by the bandits.
Mr Joseph told PRIME TIME NEWS that “32 of the students have been released this evening, remaining 31 with the bandits”.
Hayab said the released students had been reunited with their parents.
According to Hayab, when the 15 students regained their freedom, “we have learnt our lesson from the experience of the last release of 28 of the abducted students, it turned out to be that of mixed feelings particularly for those whose children are still in captivity, so we will simply call their parents and reunite them with their children.
“We are, however, not relenting efforts until we secure the release of all the remaining students and in good health.”
The cleric, lamented the back and forth conditions for their release by the bandits, asking that all should remain hopeful and prayerful while everything is being done to free the remaining students from their captors.
He gave assurance that the remaining students will soon be released while calling for continued prayers for their safe return.
Last Friday, another batch of 15 students were released by the bandits.
Bandits had on July 5 invaded the school and abducted 121 students.
The development comes one day after pupils of an Islmamic school in Tegina, Niger State of North Central Nigeria regained freedom after 88 days in captivity.
