Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, has noted that the students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, abducted last Friday are in a forest in Zamfara State.
Masari made this known while speaking with BBC Hausa on Wednesday night.
“They are in Zamfara forests, we have gotten the information,” Masari said.
He further stated that his government is negotiating with the kidnappers to ensure the release of the abducted students.
“We are negotiating with those that have abducted the students and we want to ensure that we secure their release,” he added.
He, however, dismissed the allegation that the students were abducted by Boko Haram.
