The Lagos state government has said the freed Lagos pupils will undergo series of medical tests and trauma therapy before they are allowed to return to their families.

A statement by the Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Steve Ayorinde, on Friday congratulated the parents of the pupils and concerned stakeholders over the release of the kids who were in captivity for 65 days.

“This government has already taken giant steps to secure all our schools, especially those in the suburbs and riverine areas, and we are confident that the steps taken so far will go a long way in nipping a repeat of such in the bud.”

The pupils – Peter Jonah, Isiaq Rahmon, Adebayo George, Judah Agbausi, Pelumi Philips and Farouq Yusuf – were abducted from Lagos State Model College, Igbonla, Epe, on May 25, 2017 and released on Friday in Ondo state.
