    We only want govt to release four of our leaders in custody, say kidnappers of FGC Kebbi students

    The bandits behind the abduction of some students of Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri, Kebbi State have asked government to release four of their leaders who are in custody.

    This is as Nigerian continue to witness more abduction of students.

    Recently, bandits stormed Bethel Baptist High School in Kaduna and abducted some students.

    The Proprietor of the school, who is also the President, Kaduna Baptist Conference, Rev. Ishaya Jangado, in an interview with journalists on Tuesday, said the bandits had called the school management and said they were holding 121 students.

    In Niger State, 136 pupils of Salihu Tanko Islamiyya School, Tegina, who were abducted on May 30, had yet to be released as some parents told one of our correspondents that they could not raise N100m being demanded by the bandits.

    In Kebbi State, 83 students and seven staff members of the Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri are still in bandits’ captivity, 19 days after the hoodlums abducted 94 students and eight workers from the school.

    Eight of the students and one teacher were rescued by troops of the Nigerian Army a few days after the abduction.

    However, three students were reported to have died during separate rescue operations.

    But hoodlums, who abducted eight students and two workers of the Kaduna State-owned Nuhu Bamali Polytechnic, Zaria on June 10, had not released them.

    On Tuesday, the mother of a Senior Secondary School 3 student, who was among those abducted at the FGC Kebbi, in an interview with The PUNCH, described her experience as traumatic.

    The woman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, stated, “The trauma of my innocent son in kidnappers’ den with no contact could only be imagined until my phone rang from an unfamiliar number on Tuesday last week. I picked the call with trepidation, surprisingly, I heard the voice of my son. He told me he was speaking with me from an unknown location under the watch of the kidnappers and with their phone.

    “I told him to give the phone to the kidnappers, for me to plead with them for their release but he told me the kidnappers said they did not want to have any discussion with any parents because their grouse was with government.

    “He said they were not demanding ransom but only want the government to release four of their leaders in its custody.

    “I did not have the luxury of further discussion with him beyond this before the call was terminated. Since then, I have resorted to prayers that with government intervention, the students and staff shall return safely.”
