After ransom, bandits release four of 11 FGC Birnin Yauri students


Four of the 11 remaining students at the Federal Government College (FGC) in Birnin-Yauri, Kebbi State, have escaped their captors.

Faiza Ahmed, Bilha Musa, Hafsat Murtala, and Rahama Abdullahi have all been released.

On Saturday, Salim Ka’oje, the chairman of the committee for the 11 abducted FGC, Binrin Yauri, told journalists in Birnin Kebbi.

“As you are aware, we have been raising funds for our children’s return for the past three months through an appeal fund.”

“As it stands now, we used the money we received from the people, in addition to what we already had, to secure the release of these four students.”

“This means that we were able to secure the release of only four of the remaining 11 students.”

“The joy is that these four students are right now in Kebbi Government House, very safe and sound,” he explained.

Mr Ka’oje also revealed that the parents of the remaining seven pupils were still in the bush, negotiating their release with the bandits.

Munira Bala-Ngaski, the mother of one of the liberated students, thanked God for her daughter’s release from the abductors.

She, on the other hand, issued an impassioned plea to everyone to help secure the release of the remaining seven kids.

“My prayer is that all of the remaining students will be released in good health and on time to their parents,” she said.

Nafi’u Abubakar, the Kebbi Police Command’s public relations officer, verified the development on Saturday in Birnin Kebbi.

On June 17, 2021, bandits stormed the federal government-owned mixed boarding school and kidnapped kids and teachers.
