Bandits have released another four schoolgirls kidnapped from the Federal Government College Birnin Yauri, in Kebbi State.
One of the parents involved in the deal claimed that N100 million ransom was paid to the bandits to secure the release of the four students.
The freed schoolgirls were identified as Bilhah Musa, Hafsat Murtala, Faiza Ahmed and Rahma Abdullahi.
This is coming nearly two years after bandits had stormed the federal college and abducted at least 102 students and eight teachers were abducted from the school.
During the daring attack on June 19, 2021, the gunmen killed two police officers and one student.
On January 8, 2022, some 30 students of the college and one teacher were released by the bandits.
Earlier on October 21, 2021, another set of 30 students were freed, according to Kebbi state government officials.
At some intervals, some of the students has successfully escaped from the bandits dent and reunited with their families.
On July 17, 2021, some parents of the abducted schoolgirls raised alarm in an interview with BBC Hausa that the bandits have married off some of their daughters.
They said the bandits called to inform them that that their daughters have been married off.
They said the bandits sent them footages indicating that their daughters were already married.
A parent who participated in the negotiations said there are still seven more students in captivity.
It was not clear whether Kebbi State government was involved in the negotiations for the students release.
