Meanwhile, the Katsina State governor, Aminu Masari had revealed that 333 students had yet to be accounted for. The governor stated, “The children so far kidnapped cut across the state, because the boarding school houses all children from all parts of the state and even some from outside the state. It has a population of 839 and so far, we have yet to account for 333 students.

And we are still counting because more are coming out from the forest and we are calling through the numbers of those parents who have phone numbers to find out whether or not their children have gone back home.

“Because we have discovered that there are so many local governments that the children have gone back, but based on the available record, we are still searching for 333 students either in the forest or through their parents to ascertain the actual number that has been kidnapped.”

The governor said the bandits had yet to contact the government or anybody on the abduction of the students and gave an assurance that efforts were being made to ensure their release.
