President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the Nigerian Army for coordinating the rescue operation of hundreds of schoolboys kidnapped from Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State.

The President noted that his administration and the military have more work to do to curtail the insecurity in the country.

This was contained in two-part videos posted on his official Twitter handle, @MBuhari, on Friday.

He also lauded Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari for his positive contributions since the kidnap of the schoolboys.

Buhari said, “I spoke with the governor. I congratulated him and congratulated the Army that organised the operation, the encirclement of the abductors, and getting the children. The military is well-trained. I think they are sufficiently motivated.”

He added “I am being impressed with the governor, he has been up and doing since it happened. I congratulated him that the children have been released.”

The released of the students was confirmed by Masari on Thursday night. He said that the 344 schoolboys were at Tsafe, Zamfara State, and would be transported to Kankara on Friday. Masari also added that no ransom was paid before the boys were released.

Heavily armed men raided the school premises last Friday and kidnapped over 300 schoolboys after a gun battle with the police.

The abduction took place some hours after the President arrived in Daura, Katsina for a week-long private visit.
