One of 121 students who were abducted by bandits in the early morning of July 5, 2021, has been freed on the basis of ill health.
According to the Daily Post, the student was returned by two of the bandits.
A source disclosed that the released student had since been taken to the hospital and is now recovering.
According to the source, the freed student said the bandits treated them well. The leader of the bandits also reportedly ordered that none of the abducted pupils should be molested.
According to the source, the student said, “We sing choruses and pray loudly without molestation. The leader of the bandits said we must be allowed to worship our God.”
The source explained that the abductors even asked the students to pray for them each time they were leaving the camp either for operations or market so that they will return safely.
The church is doing everything possible to meet the conditions laid out by the bandits for the return of the remaining 120 students in captivity.
