The military authorities have confirmed the release of abducted students of Kings School, otherwise known as Capro Secondary Mission School located at Gana Ropp in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau State.
Bandits had kidnapped the students in Capro on April 29 , which is few kilometres away from the Yakubu Gowon airport and about 60 kilometres from Jos, the state capital.
However, three of the students escaped while one remained in captivity.
The spokesman of Operation Safe Haven, Major Ibrahim Shittu, said in a statement issued on Sunday that Nigerian troops rescued the remaining student in captivity on Saturday.
The rescue operation was achieved through the sustained search and rescue efforts of the troops, adding that no ransom was paid to secure the student’s release.
He disclosed that the rescued student is in good health condition and has since been reunited with other students in the college
