Kankara Schoolboys: Buhari Congratulates Masari, Army For Rescue Operation


President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday congratulated the Nigerian Army for successfully rescuing over 300 schoolboys abducted from Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State.

The President, however, said his regime and the military have a lot of work to do regarding the insecurity in the country.

His congratulatory message was contained in two-part short videos posted on his verified Twitter handle, @MBuhari, on Friday morning.

He also commended Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, for being up and doing since the abduction of the schoolboys.

“I spoke with the governor. I congratulated him and congratulated the Army that organised the operation, the encirclement of the abductors, and getting the children. The military is well-trained. I think they are sufficiently motivated.

“I am being impressed with the governor, he has been up and doing since it happened. I congratulated him that the children have been released,” Buhari said.

Eko Hot Blog recalls that Gov. Masari had on Thursday night confirmed the release of 344 abducted schoolboys, adding that the boys were at Tsafe, Zamfara State, and would be transported to Kankara on Friday.

Masari also said no ransom was paid before the boys were released.

Eko Hot Blog reported that the schoolboys were abducted last Friday night, following the attack launched by unknown gunmen in the school premises.
