One Of The Abducted Kebbi Students Shot Dead

One of the students abducted from the Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri, Kebbi State, has been shot dead during a gun duel between soldiers and the abductors.

The Deputy Force Commander of the Joint Task Force in the North-West Zone, Air Commodore Abubakar AbdulKadir, confirmed this to reporters in Zamfara State on Friday.

He said four students and a teacher were rescued during the operation.

“In the early hours of this morning, we have come across the kidnappers. They came to our blocking point, and we engaged them,” Abdulkadir said.

“At that point, they abandoned five of the students and one of the teachers. Unfortunately, I think we have lost one of the students.”

Armed bandits had on Thursday abducted four teachers and many students from Federal Government College, Birnin-Yauri in Kebbi State during an attack, killing a police officer.
