According to Daily Trust, some students affected in the multiple attacks on schools last year have been impregnated

Last year was one of the worst in the attacks on schools. According to UNICEF, a total of 1,440 students were abducted across 25 Nigerian schools in 2021.

On June 17, 2021, gunmen loyal to a bandit kingpin, Dogo Gide, ransacked the Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri, Kebbi State, and left with dozens of students and five teachers.

Weeks after the incident, the bandits contacted the students’ parents, saying their daughters had been married off.

Some of the parents said the kidnappers sent them footage showing that their daughters were already married.

According to sources, about 13 of the female students were married off to bandits, with some of them already pregnant.

The girls were said to be given out to bandits and a few interested persons living in villages around areas controlled by Gide, along the boundary between Niger and Zamfara states.

A source, who had participated in past talks to release the students revealed that three more schoolgirls were released to their parents in mid-January, with all of them coming back pregnant.

“Eleven are there now; 10 girls who are married and one boy. The three he released to their parents in January came back pregnant,” said the source who craved for anonymity due to the sensitivity of the issue.   

The bandits’ kingpin is holding on two the students despite receiving huge amounts in ransom and two of his men freed as part of negotiations in October.

Speaking during the national campaign on out-of-school children in Birnin Kebbi, the Kebbi State capital in late January, Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, confirmed that 14 of the students were still in captivity.

Also, the Special Adviser on Security to Kebbi State Governor, Garba Rabiu Kamba said last week that there were 14 students yet to be released by the bandits.
