NEWSDAILYNIGERIA – The remaining 27 students abducted by bandits from Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, Kaduna State, have regained their freedom.

Daily Trust reports that One of the persons who received the students confirmed the release of the remaining Abducted students

He further disclosed that the release was facilitated by the Sheikh Abubakar Gumi dialogue committee with support from former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

The students were among the 37 abducted almost two months ago.

After payment of ransom by parents and school management, the bandits only released 10 of the victims.

Recall, their abductors had initially demanded a N500 million ransom from the Kaduna State Government but Governor Nasir El-Rufai ruled out the option of negotiation, saying bandits deserve to be killed.
