The eight formerly abducted female students of Government Secondary School, Awon, who had been kidnapped by terrorists on April 3, 2023, in the Awon general area of Kachia LGA, have escaped from their abductors.
The Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Kaduna State, Samuel Aruwan, confirmed the development in a statement he released yesterday.
According to preliminary briefings, the girls had escaped from a thick forest around the Kaduna- Niger interstate boundaries and had trekked for days before arriving at a location where they were camped at.
The students have now been safely evacuated to a military facility where they are currently receiving medical attention.
