A three-year-old child of Salihu Tanko Islamic School, Tegina has died in captivity.
The child’s body was abandoned few kilometres away from Tegina town.
Sources attribute the death to the feverish and traumatising conditions caused by gunshots.
Tanko Zegi, a parent of one of the abducted students confirmed the death of the child to ait.live
Tanko Zegi expressed dismay over government’s attitude to issues affecting its people, especially since the gunmen abducted the children.
He further said that, no state official has visited them to show concern since their children were abducted last week Sunday.
They commended the Local Government Council Chairman, Ismaila Modibbo, who has been ensuring that the children are rescued unhurt.
