Five of the students were later killed by the bandits, before parents of one of them paid some ransom to secure his freedom.
The remaining three female staff and 13 students were released Saturday afternoon near Ollam Farms along Kaduna – Abuja highway after the payment of an unspecified amount as ransom by the parents.
The freed captives were taken over by some security men around the Ollam Farms ostensibly to hand them over to the police authorities.
But this infuriated the angry parents who broke into Ollam Farms to pick their children and wives. They lamented what they described as federal and state governments’ nonchalant attitude to the safe release of the students and staff.
