Three male students of the Bethel Baptist Secondary school in Kaduna State who were among those abducted about a month ago have been found.
According to Channels TV on Tuesday evening, the three students were found by troops at the Kankumi forest general area in Chikun Local Government Area (LGA), where they were abandoned by their abductors.
Although the police or school management are yet to confirm the development, locals told the medium that the three students escaped from the bandits.
Reports say after their kidnap from their school on 5 July, they were re-kidnapped by another group of bandits in the area while roaming inside the forest.
The second set of bandits were said to have renegotiated and collected ransom from the parents of the three students, after which they dumped them inside the forest before they were found by troops.
The students have now been debriefed by the military, after which they will be handed over to the school authorities.
