27 students abducted from Afaka, Kaduna freed

The remaining 27 students abducted from the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, Kaduna State, have been released by their kidnappers.

The release is coming within 24 hours after their parents, family members and sympathisers staged a protest at the National Assembly in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory over the delay by the state and federal governments to secure their release after 55 days in captivity.

the protesting parents were particularly irked by the refusal of the State Governor, Nasir El-rufai to negotiate the release of their children with the abductors.

Although details of their release is still sketchy as at press time as the state’s Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige was unable to take his call according to a Daily Post report, a source however claimed the release was aided by the Islamic Cleric, Sheikh Abubakar Gumi and the dialogue committee with support from former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
