Kidnapped Zamfara Corper Regains Freedom After 60 Days In Kidnappers Den

One of the seven female prospective corps members abducted in Zamfara State in August has regained freedom, the Management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has confirmed.

The management of the NYSC disclosed that one of the members was released on Friday night at 12:30 pm with the help of security agencies.

Recall that in August, unknown gunmen abducted eight prospective corps members on a highway in Zamfara state, while they were en route to the NYSC Orientation Camp in Sokoto.

About a month after their abduction, the NYSC announced that three of them had regained freedom, while efforts were intensified to secure the release of the others.

In a fresh development, the NYSC spokesperson, Eddy Megwa, in a statement released on Saturday, disclosed that after 60 days in captivity, another member was released.

The NYSC, he said, is confident about the release of the remaining members from captivity.

“Management of the National Youth Service Corps wishes to convey to the general public that the Scheme, through the help of security agencies on Friday, 20th October 2023, at about 12.30 pm, secured the release of one of the female Prospective Corps Members abducted in Zamfara, out of the seven in captivity and the bus driver.

The scheme is confident that with the combined efforts of security agencies, the remaining will be released,” the statement said.
