Terrorists Free 100 Islamiyya Students Three Months After Abduction

Terrorists have freed around 100 pupils kidnapped from an Islamic seminary in Tegina, Niger State nearly three months ago, the school’s head teacher Abubakar Alhassan said on Thursday.

However, he did not say if ransom was paid, neither did he give any details about how the pupils were released.

The terrorists had on May 30 abducted 136 students from the seminary.

Six of them died in captivity and another 15 escaped in June.

Recall that in February, terrorists also abducted some staff and students of Government Science College, Kagara in Niger.

They were released about 10 days later after ransom was paid.
