Abuja (Precise Post) – The Abubakar Shekau-led faction of Boko Haram has released a video showing students purportedly kidnapped from Government Science Secondary School in Kankara Local Government Area of Katsina State.
Gunmen had on December 11 invaded the school, shooting into the air to scare away people in the area.
As of December 13, Governor Aminu Masari said over 300 students were confirmed missing.
But Masari on Wednesday while speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today disclaimed the video, saying local bandits were responsible for the incident.
But in six minutes and 30 seconds long released by the group on Thursday, hundreds of other young boys could be seen behind Shekau, all covered in dust.
Precise Post recalls that few hours ago there was a tweet via twitter handle of Abike Dabiri to the effect that the Kidnapped school boys have been released.
However, Abike Dabiri has reacted to the the tweet saying that she should not be credited to it, informing that her account was taken over by hackers but that she has recovered her account back.
