Abduction: Katsina gov’t opens register for parents with missing children
The Katsina State Governor, Rt Hon Aminu Bello Masari said his administration has concluded plans to open a data collection register at the local governments headquarters in the state for the parents of missing children.
This according to him will help the state government to ascertain the actual number of students with the gunmen that attacked Government Science Secondary School, Kankara on Friday night.
Governor Masari disclosed this plan by his administration in an interview with BBC Hausa yesterday.
Governor Masari further assured his administration’s commitment towards the release of all the abducted students unhurt.
Recall that there are currently contradicting figures of the total number of the kidnapped students.
While the state Governor told a federal government delegation that 333 students were kidnapped, a victim of the abduction who managed to escape put the figure at over 500.
