Rev Joseph John Hayab, the Head of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Kaduna State, introduced this to media these days.
On July 5, 2021, 121 Bethel Baptist High School pupils had been kidnapped on the college premises alongside the Kaduna-Kachia route, Damishi, in Kaduna state’s Chikun Local Government Area.
Rev Joseph Hayab said:
“The remaining student most popular to stay with the bandits, it puzzled your complete members of the Baptist household and certainly, CAN. The bandits had been mentioned to be showering the boy with items every time they went out and are available again from operations, thereby, making him reject the supply of freedom.
“Only one pupil of the Bethel Baptist High School is remaining with the terrorists. The reason is that this young boy – because we have to be clear with the story so that we don’t get misquoted – is the smallest among them.”
“I think the kidnappers were smart. They worked and changed his mind that he even said he wants to stay with them. They gave him meat, good things. Anytime they go out and come back, they pick him among the rest and gave him so many things and then he starts acting funny.”
“If they tell him to go home, he would say he was not going and gave some flimsy excuses that his parents used to beat him at home. But we also made findings and we don’t want to expose his parents to any noise but that is what he said. We are confused too.”
