After 18 months, cleric regrets that 11 Birni Yauri girls have not been released

Malam Tukur Kola, the Chief Imam of the Halliru Bello Juma’at Mosque in Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State, has urged the federal and state governments to take all necessary steps to secure the release of the remaining eleven (11) students of the Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri, from their captors.

He expressed regret that more than a year had passed since bandits attacked and kidnapped the girls from FGC in Birnin Yauri during his sermon on Friday.

According to kuryaloaded, the bandits kidnapped 96 students and eight teachers from the College on June 17, 2021. While many of the students were eventually released to the State government, 11 of them have been held captive for more than a year and a half.

He bemoaned that one of the moms of the abducted students passed away upon learning that her daughter had delivered a baby for the bandits and went on to reveal that others of the abducted students had given birth in the bandits’ hideouts.

The Chief Imam stated that the government should take proactive measures to achieve the immediate release of the remaining 11 students because many people were dissatisfied with the way it was handling the situation.

He said, “Their kidnappers are alive and residing in the jungle of the states of Kebbi and Niger. Why is it so hard for the authorities to get the students out?

He emphasized that the parents of the girls were suffering from melancholy and misery due to what was happening to their children, and he pleaded with the government to take swift action.
