A student of Bethel Baptist High School in Kaduna State, Treasure Ayuba, has regained freedom after over two years in captivity.
Ayuba was among the 121 students abducted when gunmen invaded the school located at Maraban Damishi, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, on July 5, 2021.
Rev Dr Israel Akanji, President of the Nigeria Baptist Convention (NBC), confirmed his release in a statement.
“Treasure is in green in the company of the CAN Chairman, Kaduna State, Rev JJ Hayab and the Conference President of Kaduna Baptist Conference.
“Thanks be to our unfailing God. Thank you also very much for your prayers and numerous support.”
Aside from Ayuba, other abductees were released at intervals. There were reports that the victim said he did not want to return home but remain in the company of his captors.
