The abducted student of Kings School, otherwise known as Capro Secondary Mission School located at Gana Ropp in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau State has regained freedom, the military authorities have confirmed.

Gunmen had in the early hours of April 29 kidnapped the students in Capro, which is few kilometres away from the Yakubu Gowon airport and about 60 kilometres from Jos, the state capital.

However, three of the students escaped while one remained in captivity.

But in a statement issued yesterday, the spokesman of Operation Safe Haven, Major Ibrahim Shittu, said troops rescued the remaining student in captivity on Saturday.

He said the rescue operation was achieved through the sustained search and rescue efforts of the troops, adding that no ransom was paid to secure the student’s release.

According to the military spokesman, the rescued student was in good health condition and had since been reunited with other students in the college.

Several students of Greenfield University in Kaduna were still in captivity after they were abducted on April 20.

Bandits who abducted 39 students from the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, in the Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State recently released a video of the students, including a pregnant female student, calling for help.
