The seventy-five students of Government Day Secondary School, Kaya in Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State, abducted about two weeks ago have regained their freedom.
Remember thathat gunmen suspected to be bandits invaded the school on September 1 and whisked the victims away to unknown destination and subsequently demanded for ransom.
The incessant attacks and abductions in the state had triggered the decision of the state government to shutdown primary and secondary schools pending when normalcy returned.
Nigerian Television Authority, NTA, posted report of their release on its Facebook page on Sunday night.
However, when contacted by DAILY POST, the state’s Police Public Relations Officer, SP Mohammed Shehu, said, “I am not in Zamfara State for now. I don’t know what is happening there, if I’m Zamfara, you won’t be able to reach me”
Daily POST recalls that the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) had ordered telecom operators to suspend their networks in Zamfara as security operatives unleash offensives against criminal elements in forests.
