Bandits have freed 32 students who were kidnapped from the Bethel Baptist School, Kaduna. This comes barely a week after, 15 of the students regained freedom following an initial 28 that were freed in July.
Joseph Hayab, Chairman of the Kaduna State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), confirmed the victims’ release on Friday.
“Thirty-two of the students have been released this evening,” he said.
Hayab, who said the students have been reunited with their parents, did not go into details.
The development comes one day after pupils of an Salihu Tanko Islmammiya school in Tegina, Niger State, regained freedom after 88 days in captivity.
A total of 31 students of the Baptist school are still being held by bandits.
