President Muhammadu Buhari will meet with the released school boys of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina state, his Personal Assistant to the President on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, has confirmed.
“President @MBuhari will receive the rescued students of the Government Science Secondary School, Kankara later this afternoon in Katsina,” Ahmad tweeted on Friday.
Earlier, Governor Aminu Masari had received the 344 abducted schoolboys at the Katsina State Government House, after they were transported from Zamfara State where they were taken by their captors.
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 the President arrived in Daura, Katsina for a week-long private visit.
