Abductors of students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, Kaduna State, on Tuesday released a video of a pregnant student pleading for their release.
The victim was abducted by bandits alongside 38 other students on March 12.
The bandits had released 10 of the abducted students, leaving 29 of them in captivity.
They had demanded N500 million ransom, but their demand met a brick wall as the state Governor Nasir El-Rufai insisted he would not negotiate with bandits.
In a four-minute, 56 seconds video shot at an unknown location, the pregnant woman, addressed as Hajiya by the bandits who spoke in Hausa and Fulfude in the video, pleaded with their parents to rescue them.
“We are appealing to our parents to help us, we are tired and there is no food. They should do their best to get us out of this place. We have spent 47 days, almost all of us are ill and there is no food. We sleep in the open even when it rains,” she said.
The video also showed a woman the bandits addressed as the wife of a military officer, whom they said they abducted at her home in Tirkania-Agwa in Chikun local government area of Kaduna State.
The victim, who said her husband is a naval officer working in Warri, Delta State, urged the Federal Government to come to their rescue.
She said the bandits had earlier requested for 30 Million for their release.
