"On Nov. 22, at about 1900hrs, Police Tactical Operatives deployed on the Shinkafi axis, while on search and rescue operations, with regards to the abduction of the students and other victims, acted on intelligence and rescued the students, along with eight others.

"The victims, who spent 60 days in captivity, have now been rescued unconditionally," Elkanah said.

Elkanah, in spite of that, said all the rescued travellers had been debriefed and reunited with their families.

"I want to use this opportunity to warn members of the public, especially travellers and commercial drivers, that the order of the state government restricting the movement of travellers into the state at night time is still in force.

"Considering the time and period in which the bandits block the road and abduct innocent people, the command, under my watch, will arrest and prosecute any person or group of persons found violating this order," Elkanah said.
