Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has assured that his government will soon secure the freedom of the abducted students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka in the Igabi Local Government Area.
El-Rufai gave this assurance on Wednesday while receiving five of the 39 students abducted by bandits who invaded the school on March 11.
The students were reunited with their parents after the troops reportedly rescued them on Monday.
El-Rufai, who was represented by the Commissioner for internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, assured that the remaining students and others still in captivity will be rescued in no distant time.
He also reiterated the warning on April 4, noting that the government has not appointed an intermediary to negotiate with bandits on its behalf.
