Parents of the abducted students of the College of Forestry Mechanization Afaka in Kaduna State were denied entry to the National Assembly complex, Abuja on Tuesday during a protest.

The protesting parents were joined by members of the Students Union Government (SUG) of the institution as well as civil society organisations.

They lamented negligence of State and Federal Government in securing release of their children.

They blocked the entrance to the Federal Secretariat axis of the complex as they were not allowed entry through the one kilometer drive way leading to the main gate of the National Assembly.

They carried placard and chanted songs of solidarity for the immediate rescue of the students

“Education is our right! Safety is our right! Freedom is our right!, Free Afaka 29, ” they chanted.

On March 11, 39 students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization Afaka in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State were kidnapped from their hostels by bandits dressed in military uniforms.

Ten of the students have been released with 29 still with their abductors
