KEBBI: Remaining abducted FGC Yauri schoolgirls regain freedom

THE two remaining girls of the Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri, in Kebbi State, abducted by bandits two years ago have been released.

According to Daily Trust, the chairman of parents of the abducted girls forum, Malam Salim Kaoje, said Safiya Idris and Farida Ka’oje were released to them by the bandits on Thursday.

Recall that 11 of the school girls had been in captivity for two years. The girls were released in batches to their parents this year after the payment of N100 million ransom demanded by the bandits.

Kaoje said they were still in the bush trying to make their way out to the state capital, Birnin Kebbi, where they would be handed over to the state government.
