The Kaduna Shool girls who were kidnapped on the 3rd of October 2019 by some unknown gunmen have regained their freedom.
It was alleged that the abductors collected the sum of N10million before the girls were freed. This was according to sources familiar with the negotiations of the girls.
The students and teachers of Engravers College in Chikun Local Government Area were freed late Friday. They have now been taken to the police station and a hospital in Kaduna for medical evaluation.
Some of the parents who spoke to our correspondent said they have seen their children and expressed joy to be reunited..
School authorities declined comments about the release.
Kaduna police spokesperson, Yakubu Sabo, did not immediately return calls seeking comments from our correspondent.
The girls were abducted on October 3 at the mixed-gender school in the outskirts of Kaduna town. State and law enforcement authorities immediately swung into action to ensure the release of the girls.
It was later decided that the parents and school officials should be allowed to conduct back-channel negotiations with the kidnappers to avoid jeopardizing the safety of the victims.
