The governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari on Saturday received another batch of 30 persons, who were released by suspected bandits.
He was told that eight of the victims were from Kankara Local Government Area of the state while 18 were from Shimfida in Jibiya LGA.
The LGs of the remaining four victims were not disclosed.
One of the repentant bandits who brought the victims to Government House, Katsina explained that the victims were hitherto held at Damsadau forest in Zamfara State.
He said their abductor was from Zurmi in the neighbouring Zamfara State and was picking his victims from Katsina state.
Addressing the freed victims, Mr Masari assured them that government would continue to persuade the suspected bandits to release more of the kidnapped victims until there was none in their custody.
The governor directed that the victims be taken to hospitals for medical check-up before they are reunited with their families.
