There were celebrations yesterday after kidnappers released three female students of Kaduna State College of Education (KSCOE), Gidan Waya.
Naija News understands that the young ladies were abducted three days ago and their abductors had made demand for a huge ransome.
The identity of the students abducted earlier were revealed as Racheal Edwin, Esther Ishaya, Promise Tanimu, and Beauty Luka, all in Jemaa Local Government Area of the state.
Speaking with Daily Trust earlier on the incident, President of the Student Union, Comrade Benjamin Fie said: “The abductors are already demanding a huge ransom for their release. We want to use this medium to urge the college community and all the students to commit themselves, the school and their parents to prayers.”
Fie, however, on Saturday, confirmed to newsmen that the students have been released on Friday.
He did not disclose if any ransom was paid.
He only said they were rushed to Sir Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa Memorial Hospital in Kafanchan for a medical checkup after which they were reunited with their relatives.
Meanwhile, a student of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, identified as Becky Inuwa, who was kidnapped along the Maiduguri expressway has regained freedom after two years.
