They were abducted by gunmen early on Monday morning between Binju village and GBHS Nkambe as they went to class.  Alerted, members of Nkambe 's self - defense group alongside other young people and Fulani herders launched to manhunt against the kidnappers.

Alerted, the Nkambe patrol quickly visited the scene and, with the help of the Bororo in search of the victims. The kidnappers, he continued, were captured more than 4 km away with the two students and were neutralized after they refused to give up. 

The girls were saved and brought home.  The situation caused tension and panic in Nkambe with parents rushing to schools to remove their children for security reasons.

The authorities called on the population to calm down.  They invited them to go about their business while continuing to collaborate with the military and self-defense groups for peacekeeping.

Nkambe is one of the most peaceful cities in the English-speaking area since the beginning of the armed conflict, a situation that many believe is due to the military camp there.
