Six students and two staff of Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic, Zaria, Kaduna State have been released by bandits.
“The captives were released on Thursday night at an undisclosed location in Kaduna,’’ the spokesperson of the school, Abdullahi Shehu, told journalists on Friday.
A relative of one of the students said N10 million was paid as ransom for the students and staff.
The students and staff were abducted on June 11 after bandits attacked the school, killing two students.
Shehu said the kidnapped students and staff members regained their freedom after their parents and relatives negotiated with the bandits.
He said the school authorities will receive the students later in the day at a location where they were kept after their release.
