The kidnapped students and staff of Government Science College Kagara have finally regained freedom from the armed bandits in Niger State.

A top security source involved in the counter-kidnapping operation in the State said on Saturday.

The boarding students were abducted by the bandits who were dressed in military uniforms on February 17, 2021.

A total of 27 students, three staff members, and 12 members of their family were abducted after the attack on the Kagara school in the early hours of Wednesday.

Niger State Governor, Abubakar Bello, had ordered the immediate closure of all boarding schools in the bandit-ravaged areas.

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, had said that the government would not pay ransom to secure the release of the abductees.

The Senate had also asked President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency on security without further delay.

Before the release of the Kagara abductees, bandits on Friday abducted over 300 schoolgirls from Zamfara State. Students of Kankara, Kastina; Dapchi, Yobe State; and Chibok in Borno State, had also been abducted in the past.
