The abductors had on Thursday took away six female students and two other staff of the school to an unknown destination.
The spokesman of the Kaduna State Police Command, DSP Yakubu Sabo, confirmed the incident.
A parent of one of the kidnapped students told the Nation on Friday that the kidnappers had established contact and were demanding for N50 million to free the captives.
“We learnt that the kidnappers had contacted the college where they first demanded for N30m per head of student. We were told that the school authority told the kidnappers that they could only afford to pay N100, 000 for the release of the students and their teachers. The kidnappers told them they are not serious to get the children back. Negotiation is still going on,” the parent said.
Following the abduction, it has been reported that the students were immediately sent on break.
We have sent the students on a week break pending when the situation would normalize,” a source said.
Mr. Julde Juli, a parent whose 15 –year-old daughter was among abductees, appealed to the kidnappers to release their children.
“We just pray nothing happens to them and they come out alive. We just have to take things the way it come because is how God ordains it to happen. I used to have two children here (school) but one of them has been taken to the Federal Science School, Sokoto,” he said.
