The Kaduna State government has said the Nigerian military has reported that five kidnapped students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, Kaduna, have been recovered.
In a statement issued by the Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, on Monday, he said the recovered students were at a military facility where they were undergoing a thorough medical examination.
“The Kaduna State Government will provide updates on further operational feedback to be received on this case,” Aruwan added.
