Alhamdulillah! It gladdens my heart to announce the release of the abducted students of GGSS Jangebe from captivity. This follows the scaling of several hurdles laid against our efforts. I enjoin all well-meaning Nigerians to rejoice with us as our daughters are now safe.

The Zamfara kidnapping was a mass kidnapping of female students in Jangebe (also rendered Dengebe), Zamfara state, Nigeria.

The raid occurred on 26 February 2021, when 317 girls aged 12-17 years old were kidnapped by more than 100 armed bandits who raided the Government Girls Science Secondary School boarding school around 01:00 am local time.

According to local residents, the gunmen remained for hours in the school before making off with the schoolchildren. The gunmen also reportedly attacked a nearby military camp and checkpoint in order to prevent military intervention during the raid.

It is the second school kidnapping in Nigeria during 2021, coming nine days after the Kagara kidnapping in which over 40 people were abducted in a raid on a state school in the state of Niger.
