The 279 abducted students of government girls secondary school Jangebe who regained their freedom today are currently receiving medical attention by the joint state government and Police medical teams in Gusau, the state capital.
Governor Bello Matawalle of the state who leads the abductees to the treatment center urged their parents to exercise more patience adding that their children would soon be reunited with them shortly after receiving the medical attention.
Matawalle who commended the effort of the security personnel who shows commitment, patriotism and professionalism in rescuing the abductees also urged the federal government to deploy more security personnel to flush out all forms of criminalities in the state and the country at large.
In an interview with the abductees, they lamented that the bandits are terrorizing them day and night during their captivity giving them rice mixed with sand to eat and slept in a deep hole without anything to cover themselves.
They added that they left their school barefooted and tracked for over ten hours in the bush from 11:00 pm to 10:00 am without knowing their final destination.
