The Kaduna State Government has confirmed that the eight female students of Government Secondary School, Awon – who were kidnapped by terrorists on Monday 3rd April 2023 in the Awon General Area of Kachia Local Government Area, have escaped from the terrorists’ den

This was revealed in a statement by Samuel Aruwan, Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Kaduna State.

According to him, the preliminary reports received indicated that the students escaped from a thick forest around Kaduna-Niger

He said the students walked in the forest for days before surfacing at an undisclosed location, as security operatives were immediately contacted for evacuation

According to him, the Kaduna State Governor immediately directed the Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs to liaise with the 1 Division Nigerian Army for urgent evacuation of the students to Kaduna Metropolis, as it was credibly gathered that the terrorists were combing forests in the area to recapture the students

He said the students have been safely evacuated to a military facility where they are presently receiving medical attention.

He said the governor praised the students for demonstrating sheer courage and resilience in making their escape from captivity.

Aruwan said the Governor admonished them to view the horrific experience as a turning point, and pursue their education with renewed vigour for a purposeful future, just as he
commended the General Officer Commanding, 1 Division, Major General OT Akinjobi for the prompt evacuation and the ongoing medicals being conducted on the students
