More than 1,400 children were abduted in Nigeria last year according to the United Nations, mostly during attacks on schools and colleges by gunmen known locally as “bandits”.
 Students are often quickly released after ransom payments but 200 were still missing in September, the UN added.
Thirty students of Federal Government College and one teacher have arrived in Birnin Kebbi “following their release,” Yahaya Sarki, a spokesman for the Kebbi state governor, said late Saturday.
 “They shall undergo medical screening and support while being reunited with their families,” he added in a statement.
It was unclear if ransom was paid for the release of the students or if any others were still in captivity.
Last June, gunmen stormed the college in the town of Yauri, seizing 102 students and eight staff according to the school.
 The attack was confirmed by police but they would not say how many students or teachers were taken.
