CAN Urges Government to Rescue Remaining Kidnapped Bethel Baptist School Students

On Saturday, the Christian Association of Nigeria urged the government to put in more effort to ensure the safe release of the remaining four kidnapped students of Bethel Baptist College in Kaduna. The students have spent 120 days in the den of bandits since they were kidnapped four months ago.

The Vice President of CAN (19 Northern States and Abuja) and its chairman in Kaduna State, Rev. Joseph John Hayab, made these in a statement titled ‘Four Baptist High School Kaduna students still with bandits over 120 days today.”

The statement read, “It is sad to again remind us that despite different security measures put forward by the government in Kaduna State, our children in Bethel Baptist High School who were kidnapped since July 5, 2021 on the school premises in Damishi, Kaduna have not all yet been released.

“Parents, school management, church leaders and relations are worried. We have prayed and we are still praying. We have appealed and cried out to the government and those who we think are responsible for the security of our nation but the journey to freedom for these children has been with a speed of a snail.

“CAN in Kaduna State therefore wishes to let Nigerians know that we still have four of our school children in captivity. The pains and trauma their parents are going through cannot be described. We must not forget these children and we are pleading with all spirited Nigerians to join us to appeal to those concerned to do anything they can to bring the remaining children back home.”

 “Government should therefore double its efforts to stop the evil these criminals are causing fellow citizens,” it added.

However, the Kaduna State Police Command said that they are still in the process of rescuing the remaining students unhurt.
