The student of Kings College, Gana Ropp in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau State who was kidnapped by gunmen after an attack on their school has regained his freedom.

Spokesman of Operation Safe Haven, Major Ibrahim Shittu, in a statement on Sunday, said that the student identified as Kelvin Eze was rescued by troops on Saturday night.

The PUNCH had reported that during the attack which occurred at the school close to the Yakubu Gowon Airport on Thursday morning, the gunmen abducted two students but one of them was later rescued after a gun battle involving the gunmen and security operatives.

Villagers said that that the gunmen had attempted to kidnap dozens of students who were already sleeping, but some of the students noticed strange moves and quickly alerted the security agencies who responded swiftly forcing the bandits to flee.

According to the statement signed by the spokesman of the Operation Safe Haven:
Quote
“Troops of Operation SAFE HAVEN on Saturday, 1 May 2021 at about 0835pm rescued a kidnapped student of Kings College, Gana Ropp in Barkin-Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau State, Mr Kelvin Eze, who was kidnapped by bandits on 28 April 2021.

“This was achieved through the sustained search and rescue operation by the troops, without payment of ransom. The rescued student who is hale and hearty has since been reunited with other students in the College.

“It would be recalled that the timely intervention of security personnel forced the bandits to abandon the other abductees.

“Operation SAFE HAVEN wishes to reassure the law-abiding citizens of their safety and its determination to bring lasting peace across its Joint Operational Areas. It, therefore, solicits for further support and cooperation of the general public.”
