Kidnapped Kaduna Schoolgirls And Staff Regain Freedom After 23 Days In Captivity



Six students of Engravers College, a private secondary school in
Kaduna state, who were kidnapped with their teacher on October 3rd, have
regained their freedom.

The state Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel
Aruwan, confirmed this in a statement released on October 26.

“We are relieved that this criminal violation of the right to liberty
is over and that they are all back safely. The victims, most of whom
are minors, and their families will now be focusing on recovering from
this undeserved trauma.

“As we continue to combat banditry, kidnapping and other crimes, the
Kaduna State Government urges all our communities not to give comfort to
criminals by dividing victims and inserting ethno-religious narratives
for the activities of ruthless miscreants.

“Government calls for vigilance in all our communities and continued
cooperation with security agencies in this battle to secure our state
and all who live in it,” he said.

The kidnappers stormed the school during school hours and abducted
the students and teacher. They demanded a N6 million ransom for the
release of the students.
