Parents of the 27 released students of Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, Kaduna has appealed to the Federal Government to help in the rehabilitation of their children so that they can resume a normal life and complete their education.
This was contained in a statement issued by the chairman of the forum and Secretary, Abdullahi Usman and Catherine Saleh in Kaduna on Thursday.
The statement said, “The journey is not yet over because our children will definitely require rehabilitation to overcome the trauma that accompanies such ugly experiences.
“We, therefore, call the Minister of Environment, the managements of FRIN and the College of Forestry Mechanisation to ensure that all the students are well rehabilitated so that they may get back to normal life again and continue with their education.”
Also, the statement noted that “it is pertinent for us to effect an important correction on the number of the released students.
“They are 27, not 29, as reported by some of the nation’s media. The total abducted students were 39, out of which 2 (two) escaped not long after the abduction; 10 were released in two batches of five each, leaving the remaining 27 who were released yesterday, Wednesday 5th May, 2021, 56 days after their abduction.
“We, as parents, made several efforts to secure the release of the students. We even took our peaceful march to the National Assembly on Tuesday, 4th May, 2021, presented our plight and prayed for the intervention of the lawmakers in securing the release of our children. (Nigerian Tribune)
