Teacher captured with 137 Kaduna schoolchildren died in captivity – Governor Sani



The Governor of Kaduna State, Uba Sani has revealed the death of the teacher who was abducted alongside the Kuriga schoolchildren in the Chikun Local Area of Kaduna State.

According to Sani, the teacher died in captivity as a result of health complications.

Recall that over several students were abducted by bandits from the Government Secondary and Primary Schools, Kuriga 1, Chikun LGA of the state, on March 7, 2024.

After much appeal to the government, the military in collaboration with local authorities from Zamfara, the school children were rescued.

Speaking in an interview on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics programme, Sani noted that although the victims were rescued, the teacher had died.

He said;

“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.

“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.”
