Four Out of 11 Kebbi School Girls Regain Freedom 2 Years After

Four out of the remaining 11 girls kidnapped from Federal Government College Birnin Yauri in Kebbi State, have been freed two years after.

The girls were kidnapped in their large numbers. However, some were released.

Daily Trust reports that the four girls — Bilha Musa, Faiza Ahmed, Rahma Abdullahi and Hafsa Murtala were released by notorious bandit leader, Dogo Gide on Friday evening.

“It took six days of negations in the forest before four of the girls were released to us,” Salim Kaoje told Daily Trust on Saturday morning.

“We have seven more still in captivity and two of the parents are still in the forest trying to secure their release.”

He said they had paid an undisclosed amount of money to secure the release of the four girls after they sold their properties and a fund raising that saw many Nigerians assist the parents financially.

In January, Kaoje had confirmed that they were in talks with Dogo Gide after they sought intervention through the mother of the bandit.
