143

The National Security Adviser (NSA), Nuhu Ribadu, on Monday, received no fewer than 22 kidnapped students and staff members of the Federal University, Gusau, in Zamfara State after they were set free on Sunday.

The New Telegraph recalls that in September 2023, 22 people were abducted from the university which included fifteen students and seven university staff.

Speaking on the development, Ribadu disclosed that the National Counter-Terrorism Centre (NCTC) was in charge of the Sunday rescue operation.

He thanked the parents of the rescued victims for their patience and understanding throughout this time and the security agencies for their noble efforts and sacrifices.

“On behalf of the President, I thank all those involved in the successful rescue of the victims without losing any of them or paying any ransom.

“This is yet again a success story in our efforts to free all those being unlawfully held in captivity.

“We have so far released over a thousand such victims without noise and with complete respect to their privacy and safety.

“This occasion marks a final juncture in a series of rescues we have undertaken in the last few months to free victims of recent cases of mass abductions.

“Going forward, we are strengthening law enforcement and security measures to prevent these abductions and strengthen physical security across vulnerable communities,” he said.
