The Minister of Defence, Major General Bashir Magashi, has given an assurance that all the schoolboys missing in Katsina State will return home in the next few hours.
He gave the assurance on Sunday when he led a delegation of the Federal Government, including the service chiefs to Katsina to symphathise with the parents and teachers of the victims, as well as the state government over the abduction.
This comes two days after bandits stormed the Government Science Secondary School in Kankara, a Local Government Area in Katsina with hundreds of students missing in the process.
Simple To Accomplish?
“Today, we are here also to symphathise with you over the recent abduction of secondary school students, which is more or less a ruthless exercise conducted to tamper with the education of the students,” the minister told Governor Aminu Masari who received the delegation at the Government House.
He added, “With the brief we received from the sister security agencies in the state, this task will be very simple to accomplish.
“Within the next few hours, we will ensure that these people are back without any collateral damage to the people of Katsina State; we have strategised.”
