Kebbi: 2 abducted FGGC Yauri students escape bandits’ den

…Taken to Dansadau

Two students abducted by bandits from Federal Government College, Yauri, in Kebbi state, escaped bandits’ den, according to reports.

It was gathered from a reliable source that the students wandered in the wilderness and then found themselves at Dandalla, a community located five kilometres south of Dansadau town.

“They entered one house there not even knowing where they were. The residents, after identifying them decided to hide them until it was sunset. They then took them to Dansadau where they handed them over to the Divisional Police Officer. As I’m talking to you, they are being taken to Gusau for profiling.

“The students are believed to be in bandits’ captivity at Kuyanbana, a forest that straddles Zamfara, Kebbi, Kaduna Katsina and Niger States.

“The kidnappers are hiding kidnapped victims in that forest, irrespective of where they are abducted from. People kidnapped from neighbouring states and even Kano state are being hidden in the forest that is dotted with several bandits’ camps and settlements.

The spokesman of the State Police Command, SP Muhammad Shehu, could not be reached for comment at the time of filing this report.

Recall that at least 30 students and three teachers were abducted when bandits invaded the school in June.
