Reports coming from Zamfara State, in Nigeria’s northwest, have indicated that at least seventy-five students, who were kidnapped at Government Day Secondary School, Kaya, have finally regained their freedom after spending twelve days in captivity.
The released students were received by Governor Muhammed Bello Matawalle at the state’s Government House in Gusau.
Confirming the release, Nigeria’s national television, popularly known as NTA, posted on Facebook that, “The seventy-five students of Government Day Secondary School Kaya in Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State abducted about two weeks ago regained freedom.”
This is coming amidst a military onslaught against the terrorists operating in the region, who are notorious for killing and kidnapping.
The Matawalle-led Zamfara government had since taken measures to halt the violent activities of the terrorists by intercepting the supply of foodstuffs and petroleum products to their respective camps.
The military onslaught has reportedly forced a number of them to flee their camps amidst suffering heavy casualties.
