Freed Afaka student: We have forgiven our abductors
One of the freed students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Sara Sunday has revealed that the students have forgiven their abductors.
Recall that the students were kidnapped when armed men attack their school on March 12.
10 out of the 39 students kidnapped during the attack were earlier released but the remaining students were released on Wednesday after seven weeks in captivity.
The freed students were reunited with their family members on Friday after they had earlier been taken for medical check-up by the state government.
Speaking with newsmen after reuniting with her family on Friday, Sarah said they suffered a lot in the hands of their abductors, noting that they were made to embark on long treks.
She said she was disturbed about her mother’s state of health as a result of the abduction, and appreciated everyone that worked for their release.
“I will tell them (referring to the abductors) we forgive them all. That is all. That is only what I’m going to tell them. And God will give them the chance to change,” she said.
“We suffered a lot. Honestly speaking, we suffered through insults, through hard labour. We trekked throughout.
“I thought maybe my mother will pass away because of the shock, but I thank God. Thank you. I appreciate. Thank you to everyone that helped us in prayers and everything.”
