An inside source squealed that Nigerian troops have rescued the abducted students in Katsina.
According to reliable information, they were rescued between Katsina and Zamfara State borders.
“Troops of Sahel Sanity Rescued kankara School children around Galma Maikomo general area within Katsina and Zamfara states border. They are with troops of Exercise Sahel Sanity and are already moved to a more secured location for possible handover to the GOC 8 Division.”
It would be recalled that over 300 students were abducted last Friday when gunmen invaded the school.
Abubakar Shekau, leader of Boko Haram, had on Tuesday said his group was responsible for the attack.
In a new video released on Thursday by the insurgents, some of the boys, looking distraught, appealed to the government to cooperate with their abductors so that they can be freed.
“Please help us. Tell the vigilantes and soldiers not to come around,” one of the boys in the video said, adding “more than 500 of us are in the forest.”
“Close any form of school, including Islamiyah. Please send the army back. They can’t do anything to help us. Please, sir, we need your assistance,” the distraught boy said.
At the end of the video, a voice believed to be that of Shekau said, “he was doing Allah’s work.”
