Teacher abducted with Kaduna schoolchildren died in captivity  - Governor Uba Sani

A teacher who was abducted alongside the Kuriga schoolchildren in the Chikun Local Area of Kaduna State died while in captivity.

 

Governor Uba Sani, who disclosed this on Channels Television’s Sunday’s Politics program, said all the abducted schoolchildren were rescued by the military in collaboration with local authorities from neighboring Zamfara State.

 

The victims were abducted from the Government Secondary and Primary Schools, Kuriga 1, Chikun LGA of the state, on March 7, 2024.

 

According to Sani, the teacher died following health complications while in captivity.

 

“It’s only one person that has not returned, and that is the teacher. That is the fact of the matter, but all of the 137 children are safely back,” he said.

 

“We had the unfortunate incident that the teacher couldn’t make it because he had some complications; he was sick — that was the report we got from the military and the security agencies but the rest of the children, all of them are back with us.”
