ABOUT four the over 120 students of Bethel Baptist High School, Kaduna State, kidnapped in July, remain to be released following the release of five more students of the school and the Matron on Friday evening.
President, Nigerian Baptist Convention, Reverend Israel Akanji, confirmed the release of the students and matron in a statement made to journalists on Friday.
While expressing gratitude for the latest release of the students and matron, Akanji expressed optimism that the remaining four students would be released soon.
Since July, the abductors, who initially demanded for N60 million as ransom, have been releasing the students in batches.
Akanji said: “Glory be to God. Five of our Bethel Baptist High School students and the matron, making six, have just been released to us this evening, October 8.
“We thank God and trust that the remaining four students will also be released. Thank you for your prayers and support.”
