Just In: Scores of kidnapped FGC students escape in Kebbi



Some of the students who were abducted by armed bandits at the Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri have reportedly escaped from their captors.

Their escape came barely 24-hours after about 80 students of the college were forcefully kidnapped by gunmen.

Sources at the community confirmed that some security agencies had launched an aerial bombardment in the forest where the kidnappers are hiding.

The source added that he saw at least 80 dead bodies of the bandits.
He stated that, contrary to reports that, they were rescued, they took advantage of the bombardment and escaped as he could not give the exact number of the escapees.

The press secretary to Yauri Emirate, Mallam Ibrahim, said the governor of Kebbi State Senator Atiku is already in Yauri to assess the level of damage in the school.

“Yes, we heard some students had escaped but we are not sure but we will wait for the governor when he comes to the palace,” he said.
When contacted on the matter, the police public relations officer Dsp Nafiu Abubakar denied knowledge of the development.
