After three months in bandits’ captivity, no fewer than 70 Islamiyya school pupils kidnapped from Tegina in Niger State have been released.

Before their final release, the abductors kept increasing the amount of ransom by the million.

At a point, they detained the ransom bearer because of a discrepancy in what the community claimed they paid ad what the courier delivered.

A security agent told PRNigeria Thursday night that the ex-captives are on their way to Minna from Birnin Gwari.

Tegina is located within Rafi Local Government Area of Niger. One person was shot dead and another critically injured during the attack.

The Salihu Tanko Islamiyya school was built by a retired Immigration officer.

Besides Chibok Girls, the Islamiyya 70 are the longest held captive in recent times.
