Emir of Yauri, Dr Muhammad Zayyanu Abdullahi, has appealed to the federal and state governments as well as security agencies to rescue the remaining female students of the Federal Government College, Yauri, Kebbi State abducted by bandits since June 17, 2021.

 The emir made the appeal while receiving the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Nasiru Idris, and his campaign train at his palace in Yauri.

Daily Trust reports that 19 months after the abduction of 80 students from the school, about 11 girls are still in captivity. 

Parents of the remaining 11 students have resorted to crowd-funding to raise the N100 million ransom demanded by banditry kingpin, Dogo Gide.

The emir said parents of the students still in captivity were worried and traumatised over the whereabouts of their children.

“Alhamdulilah, normalcy and peace has returned to Yauri, the school has reopened; students and teachers are now performing their academic activities but we want you to help us rescue the remaining students that are still in captivity”, he said.

 The royal father also appealed to the federal government to intervene and rehabilitate the road from Yauri to Warrah in Ngasky Local Government Area of the state to ease economic activities in the emirate. 

 He added that the road which links the state with Niger and the southern part of the country was long overdue for reconstruction.

 “If the road is rehabilitated it will boost the economy of the country. It’s less than 70km but because of its bad state, motorists travel for over four hours from Yauri to Warrah,” the emir added.
