Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kaduna State, Rev. John Hayab, confirmed the release of the students, adding that the students were freed on Sunday afternoon.
A top official of the school who disclosed that the students were released after an unspecified amount of money was paid as ransom to the kidnappers expressed optimism that the bandits would release the remaining eleven kidnapped students in captivity in no distant time.
A total of 121 Bethel Baptist Secondary school students in the Chikun Local Government Area of the state was abducted by bandits from their hostels on July 5, 2021. Eleven students of the school are still yet to be released by the bandits.
