Bandits have freed ten more students of Bethel Baptist High School in Kaduna.
According to Joseph Hayab, Chairman of Kaduna Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), the 10 students were released on Sunday afternoon.
“10 more students of Baptist High School were released this afternoon. We have 11 now with bandits.”
“Thanking all Nigerians for their prayers and support. Trusting God that the rest will be released very soon,” he said.
Bandits had stormed the school in July and abducted over 100 students.
However, the gunmen have been releasing the victims in batches.
The parents of the students were said to have paid a total sum of over N200 million as ransom to the bandits for their freedom.
The bandits were said to have demanded and collected fresh ransom for each batch of students released.
Three suspects arrested in connection with the abduction of the students were recently paraded by the Force Headquarters of the Nigerian police in Abuja.
