Just In: Kidnapped Kagara Students, Others Freed

File photo: Insecurity occasioned by killings and kidnappings by Gunmen has become a recurring issue in Nigeria since 2010.

The kidnapped staff and students of Government Science College Kagara have finally regained freedom from their abductors in Niger State.

A top police officer involved in the counter-kidnapping operation in the state told PRNigeria on Saturday morning.

The boarding students were kidnapped on February 17, 2021.

A total of 27 students, three staff members and 12 members of their family were abducted after the attack on the Kagara school in the early hours of Wednesday.

It is not certain if ransom was paid before they were released.

Kidnapping for ransom has become a new normal in Nigeria. On Friday, February 26, over 300 female students were kidnapped from a government school in Zamfara state.
