Nearly 300 kidnapped Nigerian schoolchildren have been launched on March 24, native officers stated on March 24, greater than two weeks after the kids have been seized from their college within the northwestern State of Kaduna.

Kaduna State Gov. Uba Sani didn’t give particulars of the discharge of the 287 college students, who kidnapped from their college within the distant city of Kuriga on March 7. In a press release, he thanked Nigerian President Bola Tinubu “particularly ensuring that the abducted Kuriga school children are released unharmed”.

Mr. Tinubu had vowed to rescue the kids “without paying a dime” as ransom.

Abductions of scholars from faculties in northern Nigeria are widespread and have been a serious supply of concern since 2014, when Islamic extremists kidnapped over 200 schoolgirls in Borno state’s Chibok village.

In current years, abductions have been concentrated within the nation’s northwestern and central areas, the place dozens of armed teams usually goal villagers and travellers for ransom.
