Kidnapping

75 Students Abducted From Government Day Secondary School in Zamfara State Regained Freedom.

Formal education has been dropped in the North due to heightened insecurity. Governors in the North have no choice but to shut down schools, roads, and economic activities to curb banditry and kidnapping. Through the back door perhaps, one would wonder Boko Haram's aim of preventing the Northerners from attending school is being achieved. Education is paying a huge price for what is going on. Children cannot go to school in the North because of fear of being kidnapped. 

According to the report released on the NTA News Facebook page, the report revealed that 75 students of Government Day Secondary School, Kaya, in Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State who were abducted by a large number of armed bandits on September 1, 2021, have regained their freedom.

According to the State Police Spokesman, Mohammed Shehu, who said in a statement that the armed bandits stormed the school in a large number in the morning on Wednesday and seized about 73 students. The Bandits later returned 5 students within 24 hours. Mohammed Shehu said the police worked with the Military to secure the release of the students.
