The abducted pupils of Tanko Salihu Islamic School, Tegina, in Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State, have been released.
According to the school’s proprietor, Idris Umar, the pupils regained their freedom after 88 days in captivity.
They were released by their abductors around Kebbi State.
The proprietor of the school confirmed this to newsmen in a telephone interview.
The abduction happened on 30th May following an attack on Tegina where bandits were said to have shot endlessly to scare away people.
About 200 persons were kidnapped from the school, among whom were 136 pupils, as well as their teachers.
Two of the children escaped from captivity after some weeks after, while four of them died.
