It was gathered that the girls were taken to a forest by bandits who reportedly disguised as security personnel.

According to a source, the female students were kept in the forest between Dangulbi and Sabon Birnin Banaga in the Maru LGA of Zamfara state.

This development is coming more than 24 hours after some of the abducted female students reportedly escaped from their abductors.

Seven out of the 317 female students escaped from the bandits while trekking along the forest.

A source from Jangebe on Friday evening, February 26, said the girls have returned home, adding that the escaped students revealed more had also escaped and are expected back soon.
