In Kaduna: Pupils spend fifth day in kidnappers’ den

Four days after, security operatives are still combing the forests for the rescue of six female pupils and teachers of the Engravers College, Kakau Daji, Chikun Local Government Area abducted by gunmen.

Gunmen had in the early hours of Thursday stormed the college and took away six female pupils and two members of staff of the school to an unknown destination.

 The spokesman for the Kaduna State Police Command, Yakubu Sabo, confirmed the incident.
 On Friday, the kidnappers were said to have contacted the management of the college, demanding N50m ransom.

 A traumatised parent had said, “We learnt that the kidnappers had contacted the college where they first demanded for N30m per students.

 “We were told that the school authority told the kidnappers it could only afford to pay N100,000 for the release of the students and their teachers. The kidnappers told them they were not serious to get the children back. Negotiation is still going on.”

 One of the parents, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said negotiation was still on for the release of the pupils and the teachers.

 When further pressed, he said, “Please, I don’t want to talk on this for now. All I can say is negotiation is on.”

 Meanwhile, according to a source, there is manhunt by security operatives for the kidnappers of the pupils.

 The source added that operatives were combing forests and mountains for the rescue of the pupils and the teachers.(Punch)
