In a viral video shared by Roots TV, parents and relatives of abducted Afaka students were seen protesting in front of the National Assembly, and one of the parents narrated how they raised N800,000 for the release of their children.
From the video one of the parents said, "we have been going for several meetings; we were taken to meet Sheikh Gumi for a meeting, the meeting resulted in the invitation of Ahmed who in turn invited a Fulani man whom they gave N800,000. The money, we were told, was just for transport".
The woman went further by saying, "I cried, told him I am a widow and I don't have a husband, I am just training this boy to help me tomorrow. I begged him and he said it was none of his business. We tried begging and he said no, until we pay about N500 million".
One of the parents of the abductees also narrated how the bandits called her for 2 weeks asking how much the parents were able to raise.
However, the bandits also asked them if they will be waiting for the Government to pay the money as they requested? "Are you going to abandon your children if the government failed to pay?" -Woman narrates as she revealed that one of the students has been killed by the bandits.
