Kidnappers release 15 school children; safety concerns increase in Aba.

Special to USAfricaonline.com

Nigerian police spokesman Emmanuel Ojukwu said that authorities recovered the children this morning, four days after gunmen seized them from a school bus travelling in Nigeria’s Abia state, a brazen attack highlighting the growing insecurity in the West African nation.

They were abducted from a bus on their way to school in Abayi, near Abia State’s city of Aba.

He said he did not have any details about what led to the children’s release, nor did he know if a ransom had been paid.

Most kidnap victims are released in a week or two after their families pay a ransom.
