Bandits Release Four Of 11 Students Of FGC Birnin Yauri After Ransom
Four out of the 11 remaining students of Federal Government College (FGC), Birnin-Yauri, Kebbi State, have regained their freedom from captors.
Those released are Faiza Ahmed, Bilha Musa, Hafsat Murtala, and Rahama Abdullahi.
Salim Ka’oje, the chairman of the committee for the 11 abducted FGC, Binrin Yauri, made this known to journalists in Birnin Kebbi on Saturday.
“As you are aware, for the past three months, we have made an appeal fund for us to gather money to get our children back.
“As it is now, we used the money that we have gotten from the people in addition to what we had to secure the release of these four students.
“This means we have been able to secure the release of only four out of the 11 students remaining in captivity.
“The joy is that these four students are right now in Kebbi Government House, very safe and sound,” he said.
Mr Ka’oje also revealed that the parents of the remaining seven students were still in the bush, making negotiations with the bandits for their release too.
Munira Bala-Ngaski, a mother to one of the released students, expressed her gratitude to God for the release of her daughter by the abductors.
She, however, made a passionate appeal to all and sundry to assist in securing the release of the remaining seven students.
“My prayer is that all the remaining students will, by God’s grace, be released in time and good health back to their parents,” she prayed.
The public relations officer of the Kebbi Police Command, Nafi’u Abubakar, also confirmed the development on Saturday in Birnin Kebbi.
Bandits attacked the federal government-owned mixed boarding school on June 17, 2021, and kidnapped students and teachers.
