Bandits have freed 10 kidnapped students of Bethel Baptist High School, Kaduna, on Saturday, while 21 others are still being held, Rev. John Joseph Hayab, state Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) confirmed on Saturday.
According to Hayab, 10 students were released Saturday evening and have reunited with their parents.
“We are now hoping that the remaining 21 who are still with the bandits will be released,” he said.
Recall that bandits had kidnapped scores of Bethel Baptist students in Kaduna in June. They have been released in batches after payment of huge sums as ransom.
There was no confirmation of ransom payment before the release of the latest batch of students.
