Fourteen students of Greenfield University in Kaduna State were on Saturday released by their captors weeks after their abduction.
ChannelsTV reports that the students were released along the Kaduna-Abuja Expressway. The chairman of the Parents Forum, Markus Zarmai, and few others were expected to receive the students at the drop-off location, the TV station reported.
However, parents of the abducted students said that they paid a N180m ransom without the aid of the government in addition to providing eight new motorcycles to the kidnappers before they agreed to release their children. Twenty-two undergraduates were seized from their campus almost two weeks ago by gunmen in April. Five of them have since been killed by the captors.
