Government of Kebbi State has confirmed the release of thirty students and a teacher after being held for more than six months by their abductors who attacked their school in the state in June 2021.

Yahaya Sarki, spokesperson for the Governor of the state, said in a statement that the students and their teacher from the Federal Government College in Birnin Yauri area of the state arrived in Birnin Kebbi, the state capital, on Saturday following their release.

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

A group of unknown gunmen attacked the secondary school on June 17, 2021, killing at least one policeman and abducted an unspecified number of students and several teachers.
