Bandits responsible for the abduction of students from the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization in Kaduna have released a fresh video of the victims in their custody.
The 2 minutes, 20 seconds video which was recorded in the night in an undisclosed location, shows the students lined up and looking unkempt.
The bandits ordered some of them to take turns to appeal to their parents to pay the ransom demanded by their abductors.
Naija News recalls that the bandits have released ten of the abducted students in two batches but about twenty-nine of them remain in captivity, 47 days after their abduction.
The bandits had requested a N500 million ransom from the Kaduna State government but the state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai vowed not to negotiate with bandits.
Below is the video as obtained from Daily Trust.

Meanwhile, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to address the nation over its worsening insecurity.
Naija News had earlier reported about an attack on Abagena community housing Internally Displaced Persons camp in Makurdi Local government Area of Benue by armed Fulani herdsmen that left seven people killed, while many others were injured.
Angry youths who were not pleased with the development took to the Makurdi-Lafia road to protest on Tuesday morning, blocking the roads with the dead bodies.
Reacting in a statement on Tuesday through his spokesperson, Jimin Geoffrey, Ortom asked President Buhari to declare a state of emergency over Nigeria’s deteriorating security situation.
