It will be recalled that gunmen suspected to be bandits abducted eight members of the RCCG evangelism team, Trinity Sanctuary, Kaduna about two weeks ago.
The gunmen had kidnapped them on Friday on their way for evangelism in the Southern Kaduna.
Meanwhile, Governor Nasir El-rufai-led government has handed over the five released students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization, Afaka, Kaduna State to their parents.
Recall that bandits on March 11, 2021, stormed the school and abducted 39 students from the school hostel.
The bandits, however, on Monday released five of the abducted student and also forwarded their demands to the state government through the released students.
The Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affair, Samuel Aruwan, while handing the students over to their parents noted that the students have been medically certified to be physically and mentally stable, having undergone thorough medical check-up at a military facility in the state.
He further stated that the state government has ordered the State Emergency Agency and the Ministry of Human Development and Social Welfare to provide direct support for the released students.
