They told us to say Boko Haram kidnapped us, they were not Boko Haram – Freed Kankara student (Video)
One of the students kidnapped from Government Science Secondary School, Kankara in Katsina State, has said that their abductors were not Boko Haram terrorists.
According to the school boy, they were told to say that the kidnappers were members of the dreaded Boko Haram sect.
He made this known while answering questions from Arise TV.
Asked if their abductors were bandits or Boko Haram, the students said, “I do not know who they are but I was told to say they’re Boko Haram from the gang of Abu Shekau.”
Asked about his experience, he added, “From what I experienced sincerely they are not Boko Haram.”
Over 600 students were abducted from the school by suspected bandits over a week ago. While many of them escaped from their captors, 344 were ferried into the forest by the kidnappers.
However, the 344 students were released to the government of Katsina State on Friday after spending exactly a week in captivity.
