Three students of Bethel Baptist High School, Kaduna, have escaped from their captors, barely a day after about 28 other students had regained freedom.
Recall that the chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Kaduna State, Rev. John Hayab, had told News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Kaduna that 28 of the students regained their freedom on Saturday night, while 81 others are still in captivity.
Speaking with Daily Trust on Monday, an aunt to one of the students, who simply identified herself as Funmi, said the students spent 5 days roaming inside the forest before they finally met another herder who directed them out of the forest.
She added that one of the escaped students who could recall his father’s phone number borrowed a cell phone and called his father who went to pick them up.
“The children were found around Kasuwar Magani on Sunday evening hours after 28 students of the school were released by the bandits. It was the school management that called my in-law to inform us ,” she said.
