Gunmen release dozens of Nigerian students abducted in May
France24 says Nigerian gunmen have freed the remaining pupils from more than 100 kidnapped from an Islamic seminary in northwestern Niger State nearly three months ago, the school’s headteacher said on Thursday.
Heavily armed criminals snatched 136 pupils from the seminary in Tegina on May 30 in one of a series of mass abductions targeting schools and colleges in Nigeria since December.
Six of the pupils died in captivity and a further 15 escaped in June, according to school officials.
