Thirty students abducted from the Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri in Kebbi State have regained freedom.
This comes four months after bandits stormed the school and kidnapped an unspecified number of students and four teachers. The attack occurred in June.
Special Adviser to Governor Atiku Bagudu on Media Mr. Yahaya Sarki confirmed the release of the students in a statement on Thursday.
While authorities have yet to ascertain the exact number of those abducted by the bandits, some of the students and teachers have since regained freedom.
Reacting to reports that the bandits who attacked the school used a police vehicle to kidnap about 50 students, the state command stated that the claims were false.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Kebbi, Nafi’U Abubakar, clarified that although the assailants carried out the attack using a stolen car, the vehicle does not belong to the police as claimed.
