Nearly three hundred teenage girls, kidnapped on Friday February 26 from their boarding school in Jangebe, in northwestern Nigeria, have been released. Images of their arrival at the Zamfara state government premises were released on Tuesday. “They are all here with us,” said the governor of this state, Dr. Bello Matawalle, “they are in good health”.

"The total number of abducted girls in the school is 279, they are all here with us, we thank Allah"

, added the governor.

The authorities initially claimed that 317 young girls were missing from the call after the attack on the boarding school in Zamfara state overnight from Thursday to Friday by gunmen.

The facial features drawn by fatigue, the young girls arrived very early Tuesday morning at the seat of government in Gusau (capital of Zamfara) in several minibuses. The authorities gathered them in an auditorium where clean clothes, including a sky blue hijab, were distributed to them. In front of the journalists' lenses, the teenage girls then stood up to the broadcast of the Nigerian national anthem.

"Immense joy" from the Nigerian president

President Muhammadu Buhari, criticized for the catastrophic security situation in northern Nigeria, where he is from, expressed his "immense joy", in a statement published in the early hours of Tuesday morning:

"I join the families and people of Zamfara to welcome and celebrate the release of traumatized students"

, said the statement signed by its spokesperson Garba Shehu.

At the end of the old year, Bundesliga relegated Paderborn seemed to have turned. A 1-0 win at VfL Osnabrück was followed by coach Steffen Baumgart's team in the DFB Cup with a 3-2 win at Bundesliga club Union Berlin and celebrated the round of 16.

President Buhari was first elected in 2015, a year after the mass kidnapping of Chibok, where 276 young girls were kidnapped by the jihadist group Boko Haram in northern Nigeria, sparking global turmoil.

More than 100 of them are still missing and no one knows how many are still alive.

"Boko Haram Survivors," Life After

Buhari had promised to end the conflict in the northeast, but the situation has deteriorated significantly since then. As of Tuesday morning, a UN base and military camp were still attacked by ISIS fighters in West Africa (Iswap) in Dikwa, Borno State.

But if the northeast is still not secure, the northwest is also now under the yoke of armed groups, called "bandits", who terrorize populations, steal livestock, and carry out mass kidnappings for ransom. .

Targeted schools

During kidnappings, the “bandits” target public figures or travelers on the main roads. But in recent months, schools appear to have become a lucrative target for these criminal gangs. Friday's mass kidnapping was the fourth in less than three months in northwest Nigeria.

  How to spot a Ford pushrod V-8, from flathead to 460 Let’s say it’s your lucky day, and you’ve found an engine laying around in the back of a garage with an unknown history. Or maybe you’re trying to discern which engine was swapped into a car, and all of the aftermarket parts between the fenders are muddying the waters. In any case, the first step […] The post How to spot a Ford pushrod V-8, from flathead to 460 appeared first on Hagerty Media.

The Zamfara authorities have become accustomed to negotiating amnesty agreements with the "bandits" in exchange for handing over their weapons. With each release, the authorities firmly deny paying a ransom to the kidnappers, despite the general opinion of security experts in the region.

Negotiating with the jihadists in the Sahel, an increasingly accepted option?

The "bandits" act primarily for profit, and not for ideological reasons, although some have forged links with jihadist groups in the northeast. Their number is uncertain, but these armed groups are attracting more and more unemployed young people from these regions where more than 80% of the inhabitants live in extreme poverty.

8,000 dead since 2011

This criminal violence has killed more than 8,000 people since 2011 and forced more than 200,000 people to flee their homes, according to a report by the International Crisis Group (ICG) think tank published in May 2020.

The other worry is that the increase in these kidnappings will further worsen the dropout rate, especially of girls, in a region of Nigeria that already has the largest number of out-of-school children, according to the ICG. .
