2 kidnapped Yauri girls regain freedom in Kebbi

Two remaining girls who were kidnapped alongside 89 students of federal government college Birnin Yauri in Kebbi state by dreaded bandit kingpin, Dogo Gide have been released from captivity.

Nigeriacrime.com learned that two weeks ago through concerted efforts by the parent’s committee who raised funds for an undisclosed ransom through appeals to well-meaning Nigerians sales of their belongings secured the release of four girls among other batches earlier released by bandits.

It will be recalled that armed bandits about two years ago attacked and kidnapped no fewer than 91 students of federal government college Birnin Yauri in Kebbi state by the Dogo Gide faction of bandits, since then parents of the abducted were thrown into mourning as some were rumoured to have been married by bandits while others were allegedly sold into slavery but fortunately, all of them have returned though some with pregnancies.

Meanwhile, Salim Kaoje, leader of the parents of kidnapped female Yauri students that were released by terrorists in Kebbi State; has said he would not speak on whether ransom was paid before their last 2 daughters were released because his Secretary has died.

” Please I would not like to speak about that ( ransom), we’ve found ourselves in a situation because our Secretary has died,” he told the BBC Hausa Service in an interview monitored on Thursday night.

Kaoje however; assured that the last 2 Yauri female students were released , making a total of 11 students who have now gained freedom from captivity.

According to him, the freed students had some health issues due to prolonged stay in captivity; but were taken to health facilities for medical attention .

He however disclosed that while negotiating, they included a lady that was kidnapped from Kaduna state who was also in captivity with their daughtes, but now released to them by the terrorists.
