Gunmen Free Abducted Students, Teachers In Kaduna
Unknown gunmen have released six female pupils and two staff of the Engravers College, Kakau Daji in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
This is coming 23 days after their abduction by heavily-armed men suspected to be kidnappers.
The pupils and the two staff were released after the payment of ransom.
Naija News had reported that the six female students and two teachers were abducted by gunmen who attacked their private secondary school in Kaduna State.
This online platform gathered that the gunmen entered the school through a broken fence and headed for the female hostel, where six students were abducted alongside two teachers.
It was gathered that the kidnappers who had previously demanded a ransom of N50 million later requested for N80 million.
An official of the school who is involved in the bargain for the victims’ freedom, said the kidnappers increased their demand after listening to reports of the abduction on the radio.
The official said: “They (kidnappers) called individual parents and asked them to pay N10 million each. They said they don’t want collective bargain again, every parent should pay N10 million for the release of their children.
“They told us that they heard the story on the BBC. They called me and they were insulting me. They said they don’t want a collective bargain again. They said every parent should pay N10 million.”
