One of the abducted students of Greenfield University in Kaduna State has been released by the bandits.
The development comes just hours after an earlier threat by their abductors to kill the remaining 17 students in their custody if their parents and the state government fail to pay the sum of N100 million as ransom by Tuesday, May 4th
Mother of the recently released student, Lauritta Attahiru who confirmed the development to newsmen however failed to give details of how her son was released and whether a ransom was paid or not.
The parents had earlier informed that the bandits have been negotiating with them individually, asking each of them to pay as high as N20 million, before they eventually demanded a bulk of N100 million and ten motorcycles on Monday, May 3.
The parents however appealed to the government and Nigerians to come to their aid so that their children will be rescued alive from the hands of their abductors.
With the release of the student, the fate of the remaining 16 students still hangs in the balance even as the bandits threatened to kill them if their parents and government fail to pay the N100 million ransom and also provide ten new motorcycles.
