The Nigerian government announced the release of 333 boys abducted from Government Science Secondary school, Kankara, Katsina State, minutes after Boko Haram released a video of the students.
NIDCOM Chairman, Abike Dabiri-Arewa disclosed this on her official Twitter page.
She, however, did not give details of their release.
Her tweet read: “Yaay, the 333 boys captured in katsina have been rescued. Alhamdulillah!
“Buhari administration has brought back our boys. BringBackOurBoys. Our boys are back.”
Recall that Boko Haram leader, Shekau claimed responsibility for the kidnap of the school boys.
