The mother of a student abducted at the college of forestry and mechanisation in Afaka, Igabi LGA, Kaduna State, has spoken out about her efforts to secure her child’s release.
"They took us to #Gumi's house, he directed us to an Ahmed, who invited a Fulani man from #Kaduna, we contributed N800,000 for him, he told us that was just for transport. I cried and pled with him, saying I'm a widow. He said it wasn't his concern" – Kidnapped Student's Mother pic.twitter.com/lh5sRxKgAt

Yesterday, there was a commotion in Abuja by the households, colleagues and loved ones of the other ones that are still in detention of the criminals.
One of the parents described the attempts they have made to secure the release of their children in a video posted on Twitter by Roots TV.
Recall the armed robbers kidnapped 39 students from the institution in March? The parents have been attempting to obtain their release since the kidnapping, but have been unsuccessful, which is why they are appealing to the government for assistance.
The offenders have released 10 of the students, leaving 29 in their custody.
