Plateau State Polytechnic students have been rescued by troops. The students who were abducted while in school on Wednesday January 12 were rescued from an abandoned poultry farm.
The National Daily reported that the students were sitting outside their hostel when the gunmen attacked and kidnapped them.
Confirming that the students have been rescued, military information officer of Operation Safe Haven, Major Ishaku Takwa said troops deployed at Nding Sesut noticed an unusual movement of persons during patrols and immediately conducted cordon and search in the general area.
