MANILA – The last two remaining college students held captive by a still unidentified kidnap-for-ransom group have been freed and are now reunited with their families.
Freed were Cid Rick Jamias from Tacurong City, and Berzon Paeste from Zamboanga del Sur.
Jamias is a BS Electronics and Communication student while Paeste is a 4th year AB History student, both from the Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology based in Iligan City.
No other details were given about their release.
Both students missed their graduation yesterday but would reportedly be given a special rite by the university.
The two, along with four other students, were abducted on June 4 at the outskirts of a Moro Islamic Liberation Front community in Munai, Lanao del Norte. The four others were released at dawn of June 6.
