With tears of joy, the kidnapped students of the college of forestry mechanization Afaka have been reunited with their family members in Kaduna after more than 60 days as hostages of unknown gunmen who stormed their college in march.

Advocating security consciousness and reiterating the commitment of the Nigeria police force towards apprehending criminals, the commissioner of police, Umar Musa Muri thanked the federal government for facilitating the release of the students, adding that concerted efforts were still being made to locate and release the greenfield university students safely.

Some parents of the returned students also appreciated the joint efforts of security operatives in securing the safe release of their children and appealed for security to be beefed up in institutions across the country and also for the students to be counseled in order to overcome any trauma they might have faced during their ordeal as hostages.
