Four of the 11 remaining students of the Federal Government College (FGC), Birnin-Yauri, Kebbi State, have regained their freedom from their kidnappers.
Those released are Faiza Ahmed, Bilha Musa, Hafsat Murtala and Rahama Abdullahi.
Salim Ka’, one, Chairman of the Committee of 11 FGC kidnapped Binrin Yauri, disclosed this to journalists on Saturday in Birnin Kebbi.
“As you know for the last three months we have been running an appeal fund to raise money to bring our children back.
“As it is now, we used to secure the freedom of these four students in addition to the money we got from the public.
“This means that we were able to free only four of the 11 students who remain captive.
“It is good that these four students are very safe in Government House Kebbi right now,” he said.
Kaoj also revealed that the parents of the other seven students were in the bush negotiating with the bandits for their release as well.
Munira Bala-Ngaski, the mother of one of the released students, expressed gratitude to God for the kidnappers’ release of her daughter.
However, he made an impassioned appeal to everyone to help secure the freedom of the remaining seven students.
“I spent three months spending sleepless nights when Faiza Ahmed was held captive by bandits.
“It is my prayer that all the other students will by the grace of God, return to their parents in time and in good health,” he prayed.
The Public Relations Officer of the Kebbi Police Command (PPRO), Nafi’u Abubakar, confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Birnin Kebbi. (ID)
