Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, on Sunday revealed the location of the abducted students of Government Science Secondary School, Kagara in Niger State.
Recall that Bandits in the early hours of last week Wednesday stormed the school and abducted 42 people.
Governor Matawalle while speaking on Channels TV said, “The students of Kagara are located around Birnin Gwari in Kaduna State which I believe very soon they would be back home.”
He further stated that cooperation from stakeholders is important in Nigeria’s fight against terrorism and other forms of criminalities.
“As you are aware, the security issue needs more commitment from all stakeholders. We have two major problems of insecurity in the north with banditry and Boko Haram.”
He said all the leaders must come to terms with the challenges at hand and speak with one voice.
In a related development, Niger State Governor, Abubakar Bello, on Sunday debunked the report that 27 students and 15 workers of Government Science College, Kagara, Niger State who were kidnapped by bandits on Wednesday had been released.
There were speculations earlier on Sunday that the students, staff of GSC, Kagara had been released and were on their way to the government.
