Eighteen students and staff of the College of Agricultural and Animal Sciences in the Bakura area of Zamfara State have regained freedom ten days after they were taken captive.
The Zamfara State Police Command which disclosed this in a statement signed by its spokesperson, Muhammed Shehu, on Friday also said their release was unconditional and that the students had been received by the state government through the Commissioner of Police, Ayuba Elkana.
The CP while handing over the victims to the state government said the students were undergoing medical treatment and would reunite with their families afterwards.
Recall that on August 16, some bandits invaded the college and abducted students and members of staff of the college.
