Oyogist has learned that the gunmen who invaded Bethel Baptist High School, Damishi in Kaduna State, have rejected nine bags of rice as well as other food items offered by the school.
The gunmen had earlier demanded food items from the school authorities in order to fend for their abductees.
According to Madugu, the bandits said authorities had blocked their access to food and therefore demanded that the school and the parents make food items available.
“They said we should bring 10 bags of imported rice, 20 bags of local rice, 20 bags of beans and then 10 cartons of Maggi (seasoning) and then 10 kegs of oil as well as two bags of salt.
“ These were the items they demanded.”
Madugu, however, said the school did not have all the items demanded because they had exhausted almost all their foodstuffs ahead of the school’s closure this week.
“The school had no more food because we were preparing to close the school in less than four days. So, the food items were not up to what they (abductors) were demanding. So, we sought assistance from some of the parents and we did our best.
“They told me to bring the items yesterday (Wednesday) and so I called them around 7pm and they asked me how far.“I told them this is what we have on hand and they started insulting me, telling me that they need more and also threatening me. He said Further.
