1 out of the 5 FUDMA student regain freedom after 50 days in captivity

One out of the five abducted female students of Federal University Dutsinma (FUDMA) in Katsina State has regained freedom after about 50 days in captivity.

The girl was released from the kidnappers den and taken to Kuncin Kalgo, Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara, from where she was brought back to Katsina on Sunday.

She is said to be in stable condition, but receiving medical attention.

The Police Command Spokesman in Katsina State, ASP Aliyu Abubakar-Sadiq confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Katsina.

NAN recalls that girls had been in captivity since Oct. 3, 2023, when the gunmen invaded the rented apartment of the students located behind Mariamoh Ajiri Memorial School, Dutsinma, around 2 a.m., shooting indiscriminately.

The police had at the time announced the arrest of a man suspected to be an informant to the terrorists, but since then no information was provided as to the progress of the investigation.
