The hundred of kidnapped students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State, are in a forest in Zamfara State, says Governor, Bello Masari of Katsina State.
Masari made this known while answering questions on BBC Hausa Wednesday night, revealing that he got information that the students are in Zamfara.
“They are in Zamfara forests, we have gotten the information,” Masari said.
He said his government is negotiating with the kidnappers to ensure the release of the abducted students.
Masari stated that he had started a dialogue with the abductors, assuring that his administration would secure the students’ release.
“We are negotiating with those that have abducted the students and we want to ensure that we secure their release,” he added.
He, however, refuted the allegation that the students were kidnapped by Boko Haram.
