Some kidnapped students of the Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri, Kebbi State, have managed to escape on Friday from their kidnappers.
According to a reliable source who resides in Yauri, some security agencies had launched an aerial bombardment in the forest where the kidnappers are hiding.
The source added that he saw at least 80 dead bodies of the bandits.
Contrary to reports that, they were rescued, the source said the kidnapped students took advantage of the bombardment and escaped.
However, he could not give the exact number of the escapees but said a handful of them had escaped.
The press secretary to Yauri Emirate, Mallam Ibrahim, said the governor of Kebbi State Senator Atiku is already in Yauri to assess the level of damage in the school “yes, we heard some students had escaped but we are not sure but we will wait for the governor when he comes to the palace” he said.
When contacted on the matter, the Police Public Relations Officer DSP Nafiu Abubakar, said he is not aware but will find out and get back to us
