This development, We gathered has led to the parents of students raising money for the release of the students which was rejected by the bandits.
A source told our correspondent that the negotiation was stalled when the bandits, at the point of releasing the students, noticed helicopters trailing them as they returned to their hiding place.
The Source also said that anxious for the release of their children, the parents of the 27 students made frantic efforts to contribute N100, 000 each amounting to N2.7 million to secure the release of their children.
It was learnt that the bandits rejected the money which was presented to them through their contact person who is mediating on their behalf.
He said that they are still engaging in dialogue with the bandits stating that he is certain that the students and staff will be released soon.
It would be recalled that our correspondent reported that the Kagara Abductees had been released on Sunday; however, top government sources stated that at the point of the release, everything became mixed up and the bandits had to return back with the Abductees.
