Five more kids from Bethel Baptist School in Maraban Damishi, Chikun Local Government Area, Kaduna State, have been set free by bandits.
“Glory be to God. Five of our Bethel Baptist High School Kaduna students and the Matron have just been released to us this evening, October 8.
“We thank God and trust that the remaining four students will also be released. Thank you for your prayers and support”, his statement read.
Two weeks ago, the abductors released ten students from their den.
Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Chairman in Kaduna, Rev John Hayab, announced the release.
Meanwhile, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has stated that nobody can declare a state of emergency in Anambra because of the recent insecurity in the state.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Ohanaeze spokesman, Alex Ogbonnia, on Friday, October 8, in response to Attorney-General Abubakar Malami.
Malami had stated that the Federal Government will declare a state of emergency in Anambra State because of recent killings, said that what is happening in northern states was much more and the Federal Government had not declared a state of emergency there.
However, Ohanaeze said though there was a crisis of insecurity in the South East, instead of the Justice Minister proffer how the security operatives could counter it and stop the situation, he was contemplating a state of emergency, describing it as “funny and embarrassing to Ndigbo.”
“Looking at it from a genuine point of view, you will see that we have had more killings inu Borno, Yobe, Plateau, Benue, Katsina, Niger, and even in Kaduna State. He will be there they count their killings in scores and in hundreds; this one in Anambra is just a few persons and somebody is contemplating a state of emergency. When they were being killed in hundreds yet elections were held in all those states; and now we have a few killings you are contemplating the state of emergency.
