BREAKING: Abducted Zamfara Schoolgirls Regain Freedom (PHOTOS)

 





The kidnapped female students of Government Secondary School Jangebe in Zamfara have been released, Governor Matawalle said in a tweet on Tuesday.

An armed gang abducted 317 girls from the Government Girls Science Secondary (GGSS) School in the town of Jangebe at around 01:00 on Friday.

Zamfara Governor Bello Matawale received them on Tuesday morning at Government House Gusau.

"Alhamdulillah! It gladdens my heart to announce the release of the abducted students of GGSS Jangebe from captivity", Zamfara State governor Bello Matawalle said on Twitter

"This follows the scaling of several hurdles laid against our efforts. I enjoin all well-meaning Nigerians to rejoice with us as our daughters are now safe," he said.

The governor's tweets did not state the number of girls that had been released. The messages included images of girls and small buses.



Schools have become targets for mass kidnappings for ransom in northern Nigeria by armed groups.

Such kidnappings in Nigeria were first carried out by terror group Boko Haram, and later its offshoot ISWAP, but the tactic has now been adopted by other criminal gangs.

The raid in Zamfara state was the second such kidnapping in little over a week in the northwest, a region increasingly targeted by criminal gangs.
