Masari disclosed this on Thursday when he received 77 of the rescued victims at the government house.

The governor said the victims were freed after the government secured the release of 344 students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara.

Among the rescued victims were nursing mothers, girls aged from six to 16, a soldier and an anti-riot policeman.

“This is in continuation of the exercise that started with the recovery of the 344 students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara,” Masari said.

“We saw an opening and we are working with some stakeholders to make sure that we exploit the opening and bring back as many kidnapped victims as we can.

“We have so far returned 103 of the kidnapped victims and the process is still ongoing. We are doing this as quietly as we can, to make sure that nobody is harmed and further kidnapping is stopped.
