The 27 students abducted by bandits from Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, Kaduna State, have been released.
The students were among the 37 abducted almost two months ago.
After payment of ransom by parents and school management, the bandits only released 10 of the victims.
Their abductors had initially demanded a N500 million ransom from the Kaduna State Government but Governor Nasir El-Rufai ruled out the option of negotiation, saying bandits deserve to be killed.
A source said their release was facilitated by popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi and former President of the Federal Republic, Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo.
