Bandits have released 10 kidnapped students of Bethel Baptist High School, Kaduna, on Saturday, while 21 others are still being held, Rev. John Joseph Hayab, state Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) confirmed on Saturday.

According to him, 10 students were released this evening and have reunited with their parents.

“We are now hoping that the remaining 21 who are still with the bandits will be released,” he said.

Recall that bandits had kidnapped scores of Bethel Baptist students in Kaduna in June. They have been released in batches after payment of huge sums as ransom.

Recall that a total of 121 students were abducted from their school hostels by bandits on July 5. While one of the students, Abraham Aniya was rescued by security operatives alongside two other victims who were kidnapped along Kaduna-Kachia road on July 12, two other students escaped when they were asked to fetch firewood from a nearby forest on July 20.

They have since been released in batches while some parents are yet to reunite with their children.
