The bandits leader, Sani Idris Jalingo, had on Monday in an interview with Voice of America (VOA) Hausa confirmed that 17 students, including 15 females and a two males, were remaining their custody after killing five penultimate week.
Jalingo threatened the 17 students would be killed if N100 million and 10 Honda brand motorcycles, popularly known as Boko Haram, were not delivered to his gang as ransom by the end of Tuesday 4th May.
With the release of the student, the fate of the remaining 16 students still hangs in the balance even as the bandits threatened to kill them if their parents and government fail to pay the N100 million ransom and also provide ten new motorcycles.

Though mother of the freed student, Mrs. Lauritta Attahiru said: “I can’t talk right now” when she was contacted by The Nation, she had earlier confirmed her son’s release to Channels Television.
Mrs. Attahiru, who refused to give details of how her son was released or whether ransom was paid, simply said her son had been released.
Although police and government authorities were yet to confirm the development, The Nation gathered from sources that a ransom of N20 million was paid for the student’s release.
