Bandits have released the kidnapped six students and two staff members of Nuhu Bamali Polytechnic in the Zaria area of Kaduna State.
Naija News had reported the bandits had attacked the polytechnic on June 11, 2021, kidnapping the students, staff members and killing one student during the operation.
But in an interview with Channels Television on Friday, the spokesman of the institution, Abdullahi Shehu, said the victims were released on Thursday night at an undisclosed location in Kaduna.
Shehu added that the kidnapped students and staff members were released after their parents and relatives negotiated with the bandits.
The spokesman, however, did not say specifically if any ransom was paid or not.
Shehu revealed that the school authorities will receive the students later in the day at a location where they were kept after their release.
