The rescued lecturers were abducted by suspected Boko Haram terrorists in Magumeri, Borno, while the police officers’ wives were kidnapped in a raid by the militant group on a military/police convoy on Damboa road, near Maiduguri, in June 2017.
Their release after series of negotiations, according to an earlier statement issued by a presidential spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, was facilitated by the International Committee of the Red Cross, ICRC, in line with presidential directives.
