Niger Gov: We did not pay ransom to secure the release of Kagara students
The Executive Governor of Niger State, Abubakar Bello on Saturday stated that no ransom was paid to secure the release of the Kagara schoolboys and their teachers from their abductors.
Recall that armed men dressed in military uniform suspected to be bandits invaded the Government Science College Kagara on February 17 and abducted 27 students, three teachers and 12 members of their family. All were released on Saturday February 27.
The governor, Bello while addressing newsmen after receiving the students in his office said;
“There was no ransom. We, however, incurred a lot of logistics because we had to involve so many groups even the logistics to bring them, and to settle the stakeholders. I’m referring to security agencies, our local vigilantes, our traditional rulers and other stakeholders” he said.
