Ninety children of the Salihu Tanko Islamic School, Tegina, recently released from their abductors, have been received by the Niger state Governor Abubakar Sani Bello, and reunited with their families.

This came barely 24 hours after the governor returned from a security tour to boost the morale of joint security operatives who had successfully flushed out bandits that had occupied  Ma’undu community.  

Speaking with journalists at Government House, Minna, the state capital, in the presence of the refreshed and neatly clothed children and their joyful parents as well as other top government functionaries, Gov. Sani Bello, disclosed that a total number of 91children and 2 passers-by were kidnapped out of which 92 regained their freedom, adding that one of the children was lost.   

Gov. Sani Bello appreciated particularly  the security operatives, his Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Rafi Local Government Chairman and all those who contributed to the release of the abductees.  

He expressed concern over the callous manner at which the bandits operate, adding that their activities are in no small measure discouraging parents from sending their children to school. 

The governor, however, assured that criminals will be hunted down and be made to face the wrath of the law.  

“This goes to show the sickness and madness in the heads of some people. Otherwise,  I cannot explain or imagine why you should abduct an innocent 3-year-old child and keep him or her for over 80 days. 

“This has affected the morale and confidence in people and has made even parents to think twice before they send their children to school. 

“However, I can assure you that we will do whatever it takes to bring them to justice. We have put in place all necessary measures to hunt down and prosecute those involved in this heinous act. 

He said the children have been medically examined and declared fit to join their families except for 4 of them who will require more medical attention.  

The Islamic school pupils who were kidnapped on the 30th of May, 2021 were said to have arrived Minna the state capital late last night. 

The children, looking feeble and malnourished, were taken directly to a government health care facility within Minna metropolis, where medical teams were readily available for thorough and proper medical examinations for the children after they were fed. 

The Principal of the Islamic School Mallam Abubakar Garba Alhassan, appreciated the role played by the state government, security personnel and others in securing the release of the state children.  

Some of the obviously elated parents shed tears of joy appreciating God for the safe release of their children.
