Bethel Abduction: My Son Among Students Who Escaped — CAN Chairman

Joseph Hayab, Kaduna State chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), says his son was among students of the Kaduna school earlier attacked by bandits but he narrowly escaped.
We earlier reported the invasion of Bethel Secondary School, Maramara in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, where many students were feared abducted on Monday.
Mr Hayab, who spoke to The Cable said his son, who is also a student in the school, was among those who escaped.
According to the former aide to Governor Patrick Yakowa, many of the students were missing.
He also explained that it is impossible to determine the number of those abducted until those who have gone into hiding are back.

“We cannot give the exact figure of those abducted for now, until those who ran into hiding for safety are back and a census of the students is taken, but we know they took a lot of students.”
“I am just speechless, I don’t know what to say. My son was among the students who narrowly escaped.
“I am part of this unfortunate incident because it is my church. This is a very, very sad situation for us.
“I was informed that bandits invaded the school around 2 a.m.
“They have just started the NECO exam and see what we are going through,” he was quoted to have said.

The recent abduction is the fourth mass abduction of students in Kaduna, one of the North-west states badly hit by banditry.
