Another 32 students of Bethel Baptist School in Kaduna State have regained freedom from bandits after spending 52 days in captivity, with 31 others still held hostage.

With the latest release, 90 students have regained their freedom so far.

The Vice President, Christian Association of Nigeria (19 Northern States and Abuja) and chairman of CAN in Kaduna State, Reverend Joseph Hayab, confirmed the development in an interview with newsmen, adding that they had been reunited with their parents.

Hayab had earlier Said on Friday that the negotiator was working hard to ensure that the kidnappers released more students than they did last week.

A total of 121 students were abducted from their hostels by bandits on July 5 but some of them later escaped while some have been released.
