Five more abducted students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation Kaduna have been released.
The Nation had reported the first five of the students kidnapped on March 11 from their school hostel, regained freedom last Monday.
The five released on Thursday brings the number of freed students to 10, leaving 29 more in captivity.
One on the parents, who confirmed the development to The Nation said, the freed students were picked up by Police in Giwa local Government.
He said they were on their way to Kaduna town as at the time of filing this report.
The parent said: “Yes, five more of our children have been released. Presently, we are waiting for them to come into Kaduna.
“But I can confirm to you that they have already been picked by men of the Nigerian Police. We are yet to see them ourselves.
“As soon as they come in, they are going to be taken to the hospital for examination, but we are waiting to receive them first.”
Kaduna Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, said he missed a call from the DPO in charge of Kidenda Giwa Local, who had possibly called to brief him on the development.
