Why teacher abducted with Kuriga schoolchildren died in captivity - Governor Sani

Kuriga schoolchildren

School children recently rescued from kidnappers

The Governor of Kaduna State, Uba Sani, says the teacher abducted alongside the Kuriga schoolchildren in the Chikun Local Area of Kaduna State died in captivity because of health complications.

Sani confirmed the schoolchildren’s rescue was made possible because  the military  worked in collaboration with local authorities from neighbouring Zamfara State.

Sani who was speaking on Channels Television’s Sunday’s Politics programme, said:“It’s only one person that has not returned, and that is the teacher. That is the fact of the matter, but all of the 137 children are safely back.
