The 75 pupils of Government Day Secondary School, Kaya, in Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State who were abducted on September 1, 2021, have regained their freedom.

The students were received by the state Governor Bello Matawalle in Gusau, on Sunday after they were released by their abductors.

The abduction of the students took place almost 2 weeks ago and was confirmed by the Zamfara State Police spokesman, Mohammed Shehu, who said in a statement that a large group of attackers stormed the Government Day Secondary School in the remote village of Kaya that Wednesday morning, seizing the pupils. He had given the number of seized children as 73.
