Three alleged kidnappers of kids from Bethel Baptist High School in Damishi, Kaduna, have been apprehended by police.
According to Frank Mba, a police spokesman, three of the 25-man gang who kidnapped the students have been apprehended.
Mba went on to say that the police have gathered enough information to aid in the arrest of additional gang members.
On Thursday, the Police Spokesperson told journalists at the Force Headquarters in Abuja that 47 more suspects had been detained for crimes including as murder, abduction, cattle rustling, armed robbery, and car theft.
On July 5, some armed men invaded Bethel Baptist High School and kidnapped a total of 121 students from their hostels.
On July 12, one of the students, Abraham Aniya, was rescued by security operatives alongside two other persons who were abducted along Kaduna-Kachia road.
Two other students who were tasked to go fetch firewood from a nearby forest also escaped on July 20.
The terrorists subsequently said the students would be released in batches.
On July 25, the first set of 28 students was released while two more batches were released on August 27 and September 18.
Gatekeepers News earlier reported that following the release of the most recent batch, 21 students were left in captivity.
Although President of the Nigerian Baptist Convention (NBC), Israel Akanji, earlier said no ransom will be paid to secure the students’ release, reports revealed that the bandits received money to set them free.
