New Video Of 29 Abducted Kaduna Students Emerges


A New video of a pregnant student alongside her other 28 colleagues abducted by bandits from the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization, Afaka, Kaduna State has emerged.

The students were abducted from their hostels on March 11 after the bandits attacked the college, which is located very close to the Nigerian Defence Academy.

Between April 5 and 8, the bandits released ten among the 39 students in two batches, leaving 29 students in hostage.

In the video apparently shot at night, in an unknown location, a bandit who spoke in both Hausa and later Fulani languages, asked some of the students to come forward and speak to the camera.

The bandits had initially demanded a N500 million ransom from the government but after the Kaduna state government insisted on its no-negotiation policy, the bandits reached out to some of the parents.

The pregnant woman and her other 28 colleagues, were seen in the video appealing to their parents to pay the ransom being demanded.

The bandits also brought out another woman they addressed as the wife of a soldier who was abducted from her home in Tirkania-Agwa in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The victim, who said her husband is a naval officer working in Warri, Delta State, urged the Federal Government to come to their rescue.
