Nigeria military rescues 137 child hostages after school kidnapping

Culture Correspondent

Nigeria’s military says it has rescued 137 of more than 280 children kidnapped from their school more than two weeks ago in Kaduna state.

They were recovered in the early hours of Sunday in neighbouring Zamfara state. It comes days before a deadline to pay a ransom for their release, and days after 17 children abducted from another school were also rescued.
