The management of the Baptist High School on Tuesday informed the parents of abducted students that the bandits have told them the students are doing well.
The Proprietor of the school, who is also the President, Kaduna Baptist Conference, Rev. Ishaya Jangado, mentioned it at a meeting that lasted for several hours with the parents.
He also explained that when the bandits called(telephone) they gave them the opportunity to speak with some of the students held hostage, apparently to show them that the students were doing fine.
“They(bandits) called us(management) to say that our children are there with them and that they are doing well. They(children) are sound. We spoke with a few of them.”
Jangado explained that the purpose of the meeting with parents, was to synergize with parents on ways to rescue the children.
“I want to thank God because the parents are understanding. We are working together to see what we can do. For now we do not know what the bandits will say. They may call for ransom and we may have to negotiate and we have also agreed with the parents to work together in prayers and look up to God in this matter.
“We called the parents to appreciate them for their patience, understanding, and calmness and also solicit for their support in this trying moment. We assured them that as management we will do anything possible to bring back their children,” Jangado said.
