Personal Assistant to the President on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, has alleged that ”some people” are not happy about the release of abducted schoolboys by the Boko Haram sect in Kankara, Katsina State.
Tweeting via his official twitter handle, he said, “When those boys were kidnapped, some people were clearly happy, and now are also clearly not happy with their rescue. Nigeria will always win.”
Governor Aminu 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.
The boys were abducted last Friday when gunmen invaded the school premises and engaged the police in gunfire.
Their release follows local and international backlash against the country’s dwindling security structure, as more people continue to clamour for the sacking of service chiefs.
