This is the fourth batch of the students released so far by their abductors.

He also expressed optimism that the bandits will release the remaining eleven kidnapped students still in captivity in no distant time.

A total of 121 students of Bethel Baptist Secondary school in Chikun Local Government Area of the state were abducted by bandits from their hostels on July 5, 2021.

The students were later released in batches after their parents reportedly paid ransoms to their abductors.
