Kidnappers Free 28 Bethel Baptist High School Students

The abducted students of Bethel Baptist High School, Damishi, Kaduna have been released after 20 days in captivity, Kaduna State Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Joseph Hayab was quoted on Sunday.

TheCable reported Hayab to have said this on Sunday, 20 days after the kidnap of the students.

A total of 121 students were abducted from their hostels by bandits on July 5.

“Hayab could not immediately confirm the number of students that were released,” TheCable stated.

Another report said 28 students were released.

The bandits had on July 5, 2021, around 2am, stormed school located along the Kaduna-Kachia highway in the Chikun Local Government Area and made away with the students.

The proprietor, who is also the President, Kaduna Baptist Conference, Rev. Ishaya Jangado, disclosed that no fewer than 121 students were abducted by the bandits.

One of the students was later released by the bandits on health grounds.

After series of negotiations, the bandits who initially demanded N100m ransom reduced it to N60m.

On Wednesday the President of the NBC Revd. Israel Akanji, said although the convention was opposed to the payment of ransom for freedom, “we have been boxed in, we have been given no option but to look for ways to rescue the children.”

It was gathered that earlier on Wednesday, the convention had reached out to some churches in the fold for contribution towards freeing the schoolchildren.
