Tai Ajoko, a National Diploma student at Isa Mustafa Agwai State Polytechnic University in Lafia, was abducted on Monday but later released.
Miss Ajoko’s abductors were pressured to release her after a ransom of 300,000 Naira was paid.
She was arrested after gunmen stormed his Ombi 1 house two kilometres from the University of Technology while shooting continuously and dragged her to an undisclosed location.
During the attack, about three persons, including an applicant, and two other students were killed.
The students union President of the University of Technology, Ekom Ayaka, who spoke with our correspondent on Thursday, said Ajoko’s captors initially demanded N50 million ransom but later lowered the ransom amount to ₦500,000 when the kidnappers realized they couldn’t pay the initial amount.
He added that after multiple requests by those concerned to reduce the ransom amount, they agreed to release him for N300,000.
He said we thank God for freeing Ajuke from the bandits. She was freed late evening on Wednesday after payment of 300,000 Naira was made
The kidnappers initially demanded 50 million naira, but when they realized that her family and friends could not afford the amount, they reduced their demand to 500,000 naira.
However, after repeated pleas by his family to the kidnappers, they were directed to pay the N300,000 they had held in their custody and thus she was released by her abductors.
