KATSINA: Govt denies paying N1m each for released Kankara students

THE Katsina State Government has denied paying any ransom to rescue the abducted 344 students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Katsina today, the Secretary to the State Government, Mustapha Inuwa, said: “Contrary to speculations in some quarters that the government paid N1million to rescue each student, the government did not pay any money.”

Inuwa continued, “Although, the process was difficult and hectic, we ensured that no casualty was recorded during the operations, we are happy that they returned safely and were reunited with their families.”

Inuwa, however,  commended the efforts of the Federal Government through the police and other security agencies towards ensuring the release of the schoolboys.

The students were abducted from their hostels on December 11, 2020, and regained their freedom after one week in captivity.
