The parents of the abducted students were contacted to send the N4.6 million balance plus another N2 million short from the initial payment of N20 million, totalling N6.6 million.
The bandit terrorists also requested six brand new Bajaj motorcycles before the pupils would be released
The Head Teacher of the School, Garba Alhassan on Thursday night confirmed that they were released somewhere around Birnin-Gwari Village in Kaduna State.
