“The command is aware of this ugly incident, and we are doing all it takes to ensure that they are rescued unhurt,” the state PPRO tweeted on his X handle Monday night.

 

This is coming less than a month after 137 schoolchildren of the LEA Primary School and Government Secondary School were abducted in Kaduna State on March 7.

 

The abduction which lasted for some weeks, claimed the life of a teacher, Mallam Abubakar who lost his life due to some complications while in captivity.

 

However, after their rescue, the Kaduna State Governor, Uba Sani promised to offer free education to the schoolchildren, adding that they (the students) were taken through counselling and therapy by psychologists.
