Nigeria: Kaduna Abduction Update: Governor Uba Sani Clarifies Number of Abducted School Children

By Ahmad Hadizat Omayoza, Mamos Nigeria

In a recent update regarding the Kaduna abduction incident, Governor Uba Sani of Kaduna State provided clarification on the number of school children abducted, stating that the actual figure is 137, not 287 as previously reported. The abduction took place in Kuriga, located in the Chikun Local Government Area of the state.

During an interview on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics program, Governor Sani disclosed that all the abducted school children have been successfully rescued by the military in collaboration with local authorities, particularly from neighbouring Zamfara State.

The abduction occurred approximately four weeks ago at the LEA Primary School and Government Secondary School in Kuriga. The Defence Headquarters confirmed the success of the rescue operation, announcing that a total of 137 students were safely rescued.

However, Governor Sani expressed sorrow over the loss of a teacher who was also kidnapped alongside the pupils. Tragically, the teacher developed complications while in captivity and did not survive. Governor Sani extended his condolences to the family of the deceased teacher and offered consolation to the families of the released school children.

This update brings clarity to the situation and underscores the collaborative efforts between security forces and local authorities to address such incidents of abduction and insecurity in the region.
