Bandits release video of abducted Afaka students as pregnant student says ‘we are dying of hunger’

Bandits on Tuesday released a video of a pregnant student abducted alongside 38 other students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, Kaduna State.

“They should do their best to get us out of this place. We have spent 47 days, almost all of us are ill and there is no food. We sleep in the open even when it rains.”

The bandits also introduced the wife of a Naval officer who was abducted from her home in Tirkania-Agwa, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State to speak in the video.

The victim, who said her husband works in Warri, Delta State, pleaded with the Federal Government to come to their rescue.
