Shekau Releases Video Of Kidnapped Katsina Schoolboys
The Abubakar Shekau-led faction of Boko Haram has launched a video exhibiting college students reportedly abducted from Government Science Secondary School in Kankara Native Authorities Area of Katsina State.
Unknown gunmen believed to be Boko Haram insurgents had on December 11 raided the college, shooting sporadically in the air in view to scare away individuals within the space.
Affirming the ugly but regrettable incident, the governor of the state Aminu Masari 13th December stated over 300 college students have been missing.
Down to Tuesday through footage the leader of the rampaging terrorist group, Shekau, mentioned Boko Haram, whose ideology is in opposition to western schooling, was responsible for the kidnapping of the Katsina schoolboys.
However the Governor, Masari, during the course of an interview Wednesday on Channels Tv’s Politics Today debunked the viral clip, noting that the native bandits have been liable for the incident.
But on Thursday in a newly released disturbing six minutes and 30 seconds, lengthy video by the group, a whole bunch of different younger boys might be seen behind Shekau, all lined in the mud.
Since January 2019 hundreds of individuals within the North-West states of Kaduna, Katsina, Sokoto, and Zamfara reported slain or wounded.
Others have misplaced their source living, at the least 23 000 were said to have been displaced, and dozens have been kidnapped for ransom, stimulating an economy of violence.
This is coming at the time aggrieved parents stage a peaceful protest in the state calling for resignation of service chiefs.
