The Niger State Governor, Governor Sani Bello has rubbished reports that the Kagara students and teachers who were kidnapped by suspected bandits have been released.
His comments come after it was claimed that these boys have been released by their abductors a few hours ago.
The governor made this known in a recent press conference where he said;
“Everything that is being said out there is rumour and in situations like this, we cannot work with rumour, it has to be confirmed. Yes, we’ve been receiving different rumours from different people within villages but we are still treating those as rumour until processed and confirmed.”
So far, the state government and the Federal Government are doing whatever it takes to bring the abducted students and teachers home safely.
We will be bringing updates soon.
