The troops of Operation Thunder Strike under the Nigerian Army, have rescued the four remaining students of Government Day Secondary School Gwagwada, in Kaduna State, who were abducted on their way to school on the 10th of October 2019. According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the students have individually been handed over to their excited parents.
The Bandits who have been terrorizing Kaduna/Abuja highway, abducted 10 students on October 10th 2019, while they were on their to school. After the information reached the troop, they swung into action so quickly and were able to immediately rescue six out of the 10 students while the bandits escaped into the forest with the remaining four students.
However, on Monday, October 14th 2019, at about 6 am in the morning, following a legit tip-off from a reliable source, the troops raided the hideout of the bandits and successfully rescued the remaining 4 students.
During the rescue operation, there was an exchange of gunshots between the troops and the bandits and the bandits successfully ran into the bush with several gunshot wounds while abandoning the students to the troops.
The parents of the four remaining students who were rescued by the troops were really grateful as they had lost hope of ever seeing their children again. They praised the troops for their hard work and hope the bandits will be caught on time so they don’t get to kidnap another set of children.
