Fifteen of the abducted students of Bethel Baptist High School, Damishi have regained freedom after 48 days in captivity.

The Chairman Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Kaduna state chapter, Reverend Joseph Hayap, who confirmed this to reporters, said the students were set free by the bandits on Saturday night.

Reverend Hayap, however, did not disclose whether ransom was paid.

The 15 students regained freedom 32 days after 28 students were earlier released by the bandits on July 25 after a ransom of about 50 million Naira was paid.

Recall that the 121 students of Bethel Baptist were abducted on the 5th July from the school when they came to write their exams.

The release of the 15 students by the bandits brings the total to 54 as 67 students are still with the bandits.
