The father of one of the 39 students kidnapped from the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation in Mando, Kaduna, Ibrahim Shamaki, is dead.
Shamaki died clearly of anguish arising from his daughter, Fatimah’s abduction.
Fatina was identified as the girl with hijab in the video released by the bandits barely 24 hours after the abduction of the 39 students.
In the video, Fatima speaking in Hausa, said the bandits threatened to kill all of them in the event of the government sending troops to rescue them.
The students are spending their second week in captivity.
The news of Shamaki’s death came on a day when other parents of the kidnapped students met with the state government on the fate of the abduction victims.
