Negotiate With Bandits To Release Our Children – Parents Of Afaka Students To El-Rufai

The Governor of Kadunna state, Nasir el-Rufai, has been asked to negotiate with bandits to release the kidnapped Afaka students. Sani Friday, a parent of two of the abducted students and a representative of the parents of the kidnapped Afaka students, disclosed this in an interview with ChannelTv on Thursday.

Sinisa Mihajlovic wore a pair of white and blue Off-White X Air Jordan trainers on the touchline - living up to his 'Sneaker King' moniker.
