Abductors of 121 students of Bethel Baptist High School, Kaduna have demanded a cumulative ransom of N60 million to free the remaining 120 abductees.
The bandits who recently released one of the students on health grounds, made the request weeks after they attacked the school located at Maraban Rido, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State abducting many students.
A parent of one of the abducted students, told newsmen that the church and parents were already working round the clock to raise the ransom.
He explained that the bandits reduced the ransom to N500, 000 per student, making a total of N60 million.
According to him: “Some amounts have been gathered but the church is trying to raise additional funds from members of the church and well-wishers to complete the money. We the parents have already been contributing to the pool.”
