Nigerian troops and village vigilantes rescue kidnapped university students

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria: Nigerian security forces have rescued students kidnapped from a university in northern Kogi state, along with other victims held by the abductors, the army and state government said on Sunday.

The state had enlisted the help of local hunters who know the Kogi terrain, and a security agent and hunter were wounded.
