The Kaduna State Government has declared the release of the 287 schoolchildren who were abducted from Kuriga, Chikun Local Government Area, Kaduna State, in a heartening development amidst the harrowing kidnapping saga.

In a statement released on Sunday and signed by Governor Uba Sani, the government expressed profound appreciation for the concerted efforts that led to the safe return of the abducted children.

The statement highlighted the pivotal role played by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in prioritizing the safety and security of Nigerians, particularly in facilitating the unharmed release of the Kuriga schoolchildren. Governor Sani extended gratitude to President Tinubu for his unwavering support and tireless efforts in ensuring the children’s safe return.

Moreover, the governor commended the bravery and dedication of the Nigerian Army officers whose steadfast commitment contributed significantly to the successful operation leading to the release of the schoolchildren. He emphasized the importance of courage, determination, and commitment in combating criminal elements and restoring security in communities.

Governor Sani also expressed gratitude to the Nigerian populace for their fervent prayers during the children’s ordeal, acknowledging the collective effort that played a pivotal role in their safe return.

The abduction, which occurred on March 7, 2024, had plunged the nation into distress, with the perpetrators demanding a hefty ransom of N1 billion for the children’s release, setting a deadline of March 27, 2024, for payment.

The announcement of the children’s release marks a significant moment of relief and joy for their families and communities, as Kaduna State strives to navigate the challenges posed by insecurity and uphold the safety and well-being of its citizens.
