Finslly, the Boko Haram sect on Thursday released a video showing the abducted students of the Katsina government college.
Gunmen had last Friday invaded the Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State and abducted dozens of students after a gun duel with the police.
The leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, later claimed responsibility for the students’ abduction.
The state’s governor, Aminu Bello Masari, however, dismissed the jihadists’ claim in a chat with the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) on Wednesday.
But a fresh video released by Boko Haram on Thursday showed some teenagers believed to be the abducted students.
