Obiajulu Joel Nwolu

Governor Sani Bello of Niger State has debunked speculations that about 42 persons kidnapped by bandits from the Government Science College, Kagara, in the state have been released.

Speculations on Sunday night suggested that the schoolchildren have been set free.

In his reaction, the governor in a press conference in Minna said efforts were at top gear to rescue the students safely.

Recall that gunmen suspected to be bandits had raided the school on Wednesday, kidnapping 27 students and some staff members.

Meanwhile, the passengers who were abducted last week Sunday by bandits allegedly affiliated to the Abubakar Shekau’s faction of Boko Haram, Jama’atu Ahlussunnah Lidda’awati Wal Jihad, have been received at Government House, Minna.

The victims who walked into the government house hours after the governor announced their release were however not allowed to interact with journalists.

The passengers on board a Niger State Transport Authority bus were abducted in Kundu village, near Zungeru in Yakila District of Rafi Local Government Area of the state.
