LAGOS: Kidnappers have freed 42 people, including 27 children, snatched from a school in central Nigeria 10 days ago, officials said yesterday, a day after more than 300 schoolgirl­s were abducted in the northwest. “The abducted students, staff and relatives of Government Science College Kagara have regained their freedom,” governor Abubakar Sani Bello said. In the middle of this month, gunmen raided the college, killing one student and taking 42 others, including 27 schoolboys, three teachers and other relatives of school staff.
