by Seyi Babalola

Twenty-eight more abducted students of Bethel Baptist High School, Maraban Damishi, in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, have regained freedom.

The chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Kaduna State, John Hayab, confirmed the development on Sunday in Kaduna.

Last week, two others had escaped from their abductors when they were sent to fetch firewood.

Mr Hayab said the 28 students regained their freedom on Saturday night, while 81 others are still in captivity.

The bandits had invaded the school and kidnapped an unspecified number of students in the early hours of June 5.

He thanked Nigerians for their prayers and urged them not to relent until peace returned to the country.
