Gunmen Release 27 Students Kidnapped in Northern Nigeria

Gunmen released 27 students kidnapped in March from a school in northern Nigeria amid a rash of mass abductions in Africa’s most populous nation.

President Muhammadu Buhari confirmed in a statement late on Wednesday the release of the students from the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization in the state of Kaduna. He didn’t say how the pupils were freed or if a ransom was paid.
