The twenty-nine students of Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, Kaduna State, abducted by bandits have been released, Touchaheart blog reports.
The development was confirmed by one of the people who received the students.
The source noted that the release of the student was facilitated by Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi dialogue committee with support from former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
The twenty-nine college students released are part of the thirty-nine students that were abducted two months ago.
After payment of ransom by parents and school management, the bandits only released 10 of the victims.
Touchaheart blog gathered that the abductors had initially demanded an N500 million ransom from the Kaduna State Government but Governor Nasir El-Rufai ruled out the option of negotiation, saying bandits deserve to be killed.
