Bandits have released a second video of students abducted from the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, Kaduna state.

In March, bandits attacked the college located in Igabi LGA and abducted the students, but 172 of them were rescued, leaving 39 in captivity.

Of the 39 in captivity, 10 have regained their freedom.

A video of the abductees had initially been released on March 13.


In a recent video which surfaced online on Tuesday, the students appealed to their parents and the government to facilitate their release.

One of the students, identified as Benson Emmanuel who appeared in the previous video, was also in the recent recording.

“Please, we are begging on our parents to please come and help us out of here. We have stayed here for days, we have not been eating, some us have been sick. Please, we’re begging our parents to come and help us out of here. We’re tired,” Emmanuel said in the video which was released on Tuesday.


Another student, who identified himself as Yahaya Paul, said: “Please, we are calling on our parents to help us, to come and take us out of here. They should try their best to [take] us out of here. We are suffering. Some of us are sick. We’ve not been eating well. Please, parents, help us so we can come out of this place.”

The video also featured  a woman said to be the wife of military officer who was abducted from her home in Tirkania-Agwa, Chikun LGA of Kaduna.

She said her husband is a naval officer working in Warri, Delta state, while urging the federal government to come to their rescue.
