Some Nigerians Not Happy Kankara Schoolboys Were Freed—Buhari’s Aide

Personal Assistant to the President on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, says some ‘people’ are not happy with the release of hundreds of schoolboys abducted from Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State.

“When those boys were kidnapped, some people were happy, and now are also clearly not happy with their rescue. Nigeria will always win,” Ahmad tweeted.

Governor Aminu Masari had on Thursday night confirmed the release of 344 abducted schoolboys, adding that the boys were at Tsafe, Zamfara State, and would be transported to Kankara on Friday. Masari also said no ransom was paid before the boys were released.

Gunmen had invaded the school premises last Friday and abducted over 300 students after a gun duel with the police.

The abduction took place some hours after President Muhammadu Buhari arrived in Daura, Katsina for a week-long private visit.

Leader of terror group Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, later released two video footage claiming responsibility for the dastardly act.

The Defence Headquarters, however, discredited the claim, insisting bandits carried out the act.

The President’s aide also lambasted the leader of the terror group for being a terrible liar. “Abubakar Shekau is just a terrible liar, though his supporters will disagree and defend him. It’s a fact, he is a liar, a terrible one,” Ahmad wrote.
