Legit.ng gathered that after the tragic incident, the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) swung into action and carried out a rescue mission to retrieve the abducted students from the kidnappers' den.
At least 30 students were successfully rescued alongside their teachers during the police operation.
Sources revealed that some of the students scampered for safety, with just 11 students remaining in captivity, including the young teenage mother.
The source also revealed that the parents of the remaining 11 schoolgirls in captivity expressed great concern despite payments of ransom and prisoner swaps with abductors at different times.
The source said:
"When the government, especially Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi, ruled out negotiation with the armed group, which demanded ransom, families of the abducted students contributed and paid the ransom for the release of their daughters.
"It is disheaterning that the bandits collected huge ransoms and married off some of the victims and yet refused to release the remaining abductees."
