Shehu Sani reminds Nigerian govt that 200 kidnapped Tegina students are still in captivity


Former Senator, Shehu Sani on Friday, while wishing Nigerian leaders a happy weekend, reminded them that, the 200 students kidnapped from a school in Tegina, Niger State are still with their captors for over two months now.

Recall that in May, 2021, dozens of children were kidnapped from a Muslim Koranic school in Tegina, Niger State,

Parents of the kidnapped students raised N11 million Naira as payment for ransom, but the bandits increased the ransom to N22million Naira. The parents who could no longer afford the ransom have since rested their hope in the hands of God.

But former Senator, Shehu Sani, has now reminded the Nigerian leaders of the agony some parents are going through as their sons and daughters remain in the kidnappers’ den.

He wrote on his verified Facebook wall: “Dear Nigerian leaders and Nigerian people; have a blessed weekend,

“Remember that the 200 students kidnapped from the school in Tegina, Niger State are still in the hands of bandits for over two months.”
