The abductors of 121 students of Bethel Baptist High School, Kaduna have demanded a ransom of N60 million to free the remaining 120 abductees.
The bandits had given the parents to pay the ransom before the end of Monday, July 19, 2021 after freeing one of the students on a medical condition.
The latest development was disclosed by one of the parents. He said the church and parents were already working round the clock to raise the ransom with the hope that the ransom demand is met on Monday and the students would be released on Tuesday as promised by the bandits.
It was gathered that the bandits reduced the ransom to N500, 000 per student, making a total of N60 million.
“Some amounts have been gathered but the church is trying to raise additional funds from members of the church and well-wishers to complete the money. We the parents have already been contributing to the pool.”
