Just In: Bandits free kidnapped Zamfara schoolgirls

Bandits have released schoolgirls who were abducted from a government college in Jangebe, Zamfara, on Friday.

Governor Bello Matawalle said the girls were freed on Tuesday morning. It was unclear how many of the 317 girls were released and under what terms, but the governor’s statement indicated a substantial majority.

“It gladdens my heart to announce the release of the abducted students of GGSS Jangebe from captivity,” Mr. Matawalle said. “This follows the scaling of several hurdles laid against our efforts.”

The governor thanked Allah and urged the public to rejoice with the state on achieving a safe return of the schoolgirls.
