30 students and a teacher of Federal Government College (FGC), Birnin Yauri kidnapped in June 2021 have regained freedom, the Kebbi State Government has confirmed.

Gunmen had abducted over 100 students and eight teachers from the College on Thursday, 17 June, 2021.

However, troops succeeded in rescuing some of the students days after they were abducted, while others escaped from the gunmen in the process of taking them away.

The bandits had on October 21, 2021 released 30 of the students.

Malam Yahaya Sarki, the Special Adviser Media to Gov. Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State, confirmed that 30 more students and a teacher of the College have also been freed by the bandits in a statement in Birnin Kebbi, the Kebbi State capital.

Sarki said: “Today, Saturday 8th January 2022, 30 students of Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri, and one teacher have arrived Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State capital, following their release.

“They shall undergo medical screening and support while being re-united with their families.

“We thank all security agencies and those who have helped in securing the release, while congratulating Mr President, Muhammadu Buhari, for the success.”

It is not clear if ransom was paid to bandits to secure freedom for the students.

It is also not certain how many students and teachers are still being kept by the bandits.
