Five more students out of the 39 abducted students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka in Kaduna State have been released from captivity.

Their release comes barely 72 hours after the first set of five students were freed by the bandits who abducted them from their school in the Igabi Local Government Area of the state on March 11.

The Kaduna State government and police authorities have yet to confirm the release of the five students.

But the Personal Assistant to the Provost of the College, Ahmed Rufai, confirmed that four males and a female student were released at about 6pm on Thursday.

He explained that three of the released male students were brothers from the same parents, but he did not say if any ransom was paid before the students regained freedom.

The latest release of the students brings the total number of those freed by the bandits to 10 so far, while 29 others are still in captivity.
