Over 300 students abducted by bandits at the Government Science Secondary School in Kankara have regained freedom.
The boys were released at about 2.20 pm on Thursday afternoon after spending six nights in captivity according to reports by Arise TV.
Recall that bandits attacked the all-boys school on Friday, December 11 and abducted the school children.
The bandits used the children as a human shield as they were forced marched through the night to Daji Yankuzo village in Zamfara state, making it difficult for security operatives to use lethal force to rescue the children.
However, the Nigeria military surrounded the perimeter of the location where the bandits camped the boys and maintained aerial surveillance even as negotiations and intelligence operations were ongoing.
