Parents and Students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization, Afaka, Kaduna, on Thursday staged a protest over the abduction of 39 students of the college by bandits.
The protesters, who converged on the school premises around 11:30am on Thursday, appealed to authorities to rescue the victims.

According to the parents, since the incident occurred a week ago, the state government and school authorities have not briefed them about efforts being made to rescue the victims.
The protesters displayed placards with inscriptions such as “Free Afaka 39 students”, “End Kidnapping”, “FCFM Students Say No To Kidnapping”, “Bring Back Our Boys vs Girls”, among others.
They were chanting different songs as they marched on the new Mando road linking the college and Rigasa Train Station.
A parent, Sunday Musa, said they are tired of the “waiting game”.
“We don’t know the condition our children are in or what they are eating in the bush. So we are staging this protest for government to help rescue them,” he said.
