Barely 72 hours after the abduction of over 150 pupils from Salihu Tanko Islamiyya school in Niger state, one of the parent of the abducted students has died.

Abubakar Hassan, the principal of the school, disclosed this during an interview with AriseTV Wednesday, June 2. Hassan said the bandits have contacted him and asked for N300 million but that the ransom has been reduced to 110 million.

Abubakar said when the bandits contacted him, he appealed to them to allow him to speak with one of the three teachers who were abducted alongside the students, some of whom were about four years old, and the teacher told him that the bandits have started beating them and have refused to give them food.

”What pains me most is that I pleaded with the bandits to allow me talk to one of the teachers. When I spoke to her, she was complaining to me that they have started beating them and that there was no food, water. She said some of the kids cannot move their legs.

We are in a bad situation here.

One of the kid’s parents is now dead because of the incident. She has only one child and when she heard what happened, she fainted. They took her to the hospital where she died yesterday evening” he said

Abubakar who sounded disappointed said the state government is yet to contact him since the abduction happened Sunday, May 30.

”The government agencies have not intervened. The SSG spoke to us through his wife. The wife called me and she gave the phone to him and we were able to talk. During the conversation, he promised that they are going to intervene and up till now as I am talking to you, none of them came to sympathise with us”

The Macias children, who are being cared for by Daniel’s parents, have not quite grasped what has happened to their mother and father, Serey said. After Daniel died on Sept. 9, a counselor explained to the two eldest children, 7 and 5, that both of their parents were gone, Serey said. While the oldest child — Daniel and Davy’s only son — understood the situation, his younger sister is “still looking for mommy,” Serey said. All of the children, Serey has heard from the grandparents, “spend a lot of time at night looking for mom and dad.”
