An exchange of gunfire between soldiers and bandits has led to the death of a student abducted from the Federal Government College in Birnin Yauri, Kebbi State.
Air Commodore Abubakar AbdulKadir, Deputy Force Commander of the Joint Task Force in the North-West Zone, confirmed this to reporters in Zamfara State on Friday.
During the operation, four students and a teacher were rescued.
We came across the kidnappers in the early hours of this morning. Abdulkadir said, “We engaged them at our blocking point.
“At that point, they abandoned five students and one teacher. I think we have lost one of the students.”
