Breaking: Freed Kankara Schoolboys Arrive Katsina Govt House

By Francis Sardauna


The 344 Students of the Government Science Secondary School, Kankara who were freed from captivity arrived Katsina State Government House Friday morning.

They arrived Government House at about 9:20am.

The 344 students, who were released on Thursday night by their abductors, were received by Governor Aminu Bello Masari

They were driven into the Government House in a convoy escorted by security operatives.

The students, some of who were still in their school uniforms, walked into the conference room bare footed and many of them looked tired.

Masari, is expected to address journalists on the next line of action about the freed students who are already at the Red Chamber of General Muhammedu Buhari House, Katsina.

Gunmen had last Friday attacked Government Science Secondary School, Kankara in Katsina State and abducted hundreds of schoolboys, barely hours after President Buhari arrived Daura – his hometown in Katsina State – for a week-long private visit.

This is a developing story….
