Kaduna abduction: How five of us regained freedom – Freed student narrates
One of the kidnapped students of the 39 abducted students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization Mando in Igabi Local Government Area, Francis Paul, has narrated how five of them regained freedom.
Paul, a 200 level undergraduate of Agricultural Technology of the college, also narrated their ordeal in the kidnappers’ den.
On Thursday night, March 11, 2021, the bandits in large numbers invaded the school located opposite the Nigerian Defence Academy along the Kaduna International Airport road and abducted 39 students.
Some of the students were in a viral video released by the bandits on Saturday after their abduction, in their night wears.
He also confirmed the authenticity of the video released by the bandit a few days after their abduction.
The freed student spoke when the Kaduna State Government on Thursday handed over five out of the 39 abducted students to their parents.
According to Paul, the bandits said when the students were being flogged, the governor will be moved to come and pay the N500m ransom demanded.
But when asked whether the bandits molested (raped) their female counterparts sexually, he said “no”.
He also recalled the day they were abducted, noting that the bandits took them from one forest to another.
On feeding, he said, food which they don’t know what it was made up of were being rationed to them. Punch
