Two Abducted Kebbi Students Regain Freedom




Two out of the abducted students of Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri in Kebbi State have regained their freedom.

Spokesman of the Zamfara State Police Command, SP Mohammed Shehu, made this known to reporters on Sunday in Gusau, the state capital.

Shehu noted that the students were rescued by the police authorities in a forest of Dansadau District, Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

He, however, failed to state if any ransom was paid to secure the release of the students, even as uncertainly looms over the remaining number of students still in captivity.


The rescue effort is coming about six weeks after gunmen suspected to be bandits stormed the school and abducted an unspecified number of students and four teachers.

The gunmen also killed a police officer during the attack.
