Students of the Government Science College, Kagara, Niger State who were kidnapped last Saturday have narrated their experiences with their abductors.
The students revealed that the bandits said their operations are always successful because of the collaboration they get from informants in any area of planned attack.
According to them, the bandits claimed there was no way they could succeed in their attacks without the help of informants.
Suleiman Lawan, while speaking on Sunday on behalf of other students, during a brief ceremony to reunite them with their families, said the bandits claimed they continue to thrive in their business because of insiders willing to offer information.
According to Lawan, the bandits who are mostly illiterate claimed that their informats keep abreast of reactions from each kidnapped victims.
“They said how can they successfully carry out their kidnaps without insiders. They said they don’t work alone but with informants within the environment they attack. That even as we were with them, they have information from different persons of reactions to our kidnap including security personnel and other members of the society.
“During the attack on our school, some of our teachers and our students lost their laptops, motorcycles, handsets among others to the bandits. But we all thank God we came back all alive,” Lawan revealed.
He, however, called on the bandits to have a change of heart and drop the kidnap of innocent people and return to their former trade.
He further thanked the state government for rescuing them from their abductors.
