While confirming the development to our correspondent, Chairman of the Parents association, Abdullahi Usman said ” yes they were released. We thank you for the support. ”

Although news of their release remain sketchy, journalists were told that renowned Muslim scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi and a former president of Nigeria, facilitated their release.

The students have been in captivity for about 2 months. Initially, 37 students were abducted from the college but the bandits released 10.

They had demanded a ransom of N500 million before releasing the students.
