She however refused to give details of how her son was released and whether a ransom was paid or not.

As of the time of filing this report, the police and Kaduna state government authorities are yet to confirm the development.

 

News Online gathered that some of the parents told the TV station that the student was released on Saturday after his mother, who is the wife of a Retired Army officer from Plateau State negotiated and paid ransom to the bandits privately before they released her son on Saturday.
