Governor Sani Bello of Niger State has played down reports that the Kagara students and teachers who were Kidnapped by suspected bandits on Wednesday, February 17, have been released.
Recall that few hours ago, rumors made rounds on social media that the abducted students have been released from captivity.
Hello who dismissed the claim at a press conference this afternoon, said
”Everything that is being said out there is rumour and in situations like this, we cannot work with rumour, it has to be confirmed. Yes, we’ve been receiving different rumours from different people within villages but we are still treating those as rumour until processed and confirmed.”
