Nine (9) kidnapped A.B.U students regain freedom
The Management of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Kaduna State, stated that nine of its students kidnapped by gunmen last Sunday, have been set free by their kidnappers.
ABU Director of Public Affairs, Auwal Umar, affirmed the release of the kidnapped students on Sunday.
Umar said the nine students regained freedom from their captors on Saturday night.
Also, a brother to one of the students that was kidnapped, Julius Mutum, tweeted that his sister has been freed.
Mutum tweeted, “Some of the #ABU9 including my sister have just regained their freedom. Strictly by family efforts. Thank you @TheAbusite for lending your voice when everyone including govt and security agents didn’t care.”
One of the students, Dickson Oko, who escaped with a gunshot wound said the kidnappers had contacted families of the students demanding N30 million ransom on each student. The kidnappers, however, reduced their demand to N1 million on each student.
