Sadly, one of the students who was unidentified later died, though no detail was given on how the death occurred.

Abdulkadir said, “In the early hours of this morning, we came across the kidnappers. They came to our blocking point, and we engaged them.

“At that point, they abandoned five of the students and one of the teachers. Unfortunately, I think we lost one of the students.”
