Troops rescue three more Baptist students in Kaduna forest


Another set of three abducted students of the Bethel Baptist School in Kaduna State wandering in the forest have been rescued by troops.

The students, who are all male, were found by troops at the Kankumi forest general area in Chikun Local Council where they were abandoned by their abductors.

Although, at press time, the police or school management had yet to confirm the rescue, residents told journalists that the three students escaped from the bandits.


Besides, after their kidnap from their school on July 5, they were reportedly re-kidnapped by another group of bandits while wandering inside the forest.

The second set of bandits were said to have renegotiated and collected ransom from the parents of the three students, after which they dumped them inside the forest before they were found by the troops.

Meanwhile, the students have being debriefed by the military, after which they would be handed over to the school authorities, and subsequently to their parents.
