Khalid Mani who is one of the students of Government Science Secondary School in Kankawa, Katsina state who escaped after he was kidnapped along with his colleagues by suspected Boko Haram members on December 11, has given an account of what happened.
Speaking an interview with Channels TV, Khalid said
”Upon their arrival at about 9pm, the bandits when I was returning from buying razor blade, first attacked the local security guard including one of the police officers on ground. They later on started shooting sporadically into the air saying Allahu Akbar which in effect captured our attention.
Each motorcycle was carrying three bandits.”
Speaking further, he said
”They equally promised that they are here to help us and that we should not be frightened because they are not thieves. They asked us to gather all our phones and torch lights in one place.
So I am calling on the government to redouble their effort to rescue my friends”
