NEWS DIGEST – Abducted schoolgirls of Government Girls Secondary School Jangebe in Zamfara State have regained freedom after spending four days in captivity.
THE NEWS DIGEST reports that the schoolgirls, numbering 279, arrived Government House, Gusau in the early hours of Tuesday.
The girls are expected to be reunited with their families, some of whom camped in the school, after the governor, Bello Matawalle, addressed a press conference.
President Muhammadu Buhari had on Sunday assured Nigerians that last Friday’s abduction of female students from Government Girls Science Secondary School, Jangebe, will be the last to happen.
The president’s statement was relayed, through Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, who led a high-powered federal government delegation to sympathise with the people and government of Zamfara.
He said new measures had been developed by the federal government which would bring complete end to all forms of criminality in the nation.
