A pregnant student abducted from the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation in Afaka, Kaduna State, has appealed to their parents to rescue them.
She was abducted alongside 38 other students of the institution on March 2, 2021.
The student, in a new video released by bandits, said she and her other colleagues in captivity are sick and have no food to eat.
However, between April 5 and 8, the bandits have released 10 of the abducted students, leaving 29 of them in captivity.
They had initially demanded N500 million ransom from the state government, but after the administration of governor Nasir El-Rufai insisted that it would not pay ransom, they reached out to some parents.
Daily Trust reports that in a four-minute, 56 seconds video shot at night in an unknown location in a forest, a bandit was heard speaking in Hausa and later Fulfulde.
He asked some of the students to come forward and speak to the camera.
In the video, the pregnant woman the bandits addressed as Hajiya, pleaded that they sleep outside even when it rains.
“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 newspaper said the bandits also introduced a woman they addressed as the wife of a military officer who was abducted from her home in Tirkania-Agwa in Chikun Local Government Area of the 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 N30million for her release.
