137 Abducted Kuriga Schoolchildren Reunited in Kaduna After Ordeal


On March 24th, 2024, a sigh of relief swept through Kaduna State as 137 schoolchildren, abducted two weeks prior from LEA Primary School and Government Secondary School in Kuriga, were successfully rescued.

The military, working alongside local authorities from neighboring Zamfara State, managed to locate and secure the children’s release.

The incident caused immense anxiety, with initial reports inflating the number of abducted children to 287. Governor Uba Sani later clarified that the actual figure was 137.

Sadly, a teacher who was taken alongside the students wasn’t as fortunate and passed away while in captivity. The authorities expressed their condolences to the families of the rescued children and the deceased teacher.

The return of the children marked a moment of hope after a harrowing experience. The government has since begun efforts to ensure the well-being of the rescued children, providing medical care and trauma counseling to help them cope with the ordeal.

There are also discussions about implementing improved security measures in schools across the region to prevent similar tragedies in the future.
