Schoolgirls kidnapped from Engravers College, a private secondary school in Kaduna state, have reportedly regained freedom.

The girls alongside their teacher were kidnapped on October 3rd and according to the state Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, they have been released.

A statement from the state read thus;

“We are relieved that this criminal violation of the right to liberty is over and that they are all back safely. The victims, most of whom are minors, and their families will now be focusing on recovering from this undeserved trauma.

“As we continue to combat banditry, kidnapping and other crimes, the Kaduna State Government urges all our communities not to give comfort to criminals by dividing victims and inserting ethnoreligious narratives for the activities of ruthless miscreants.
