Kankara abduction: Garba Shehu apologizes over misleading figure


Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, has apologized to Nigerians for his claim that only 10 students of the Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State, were in the custody of their bandit abductors instead of the 333 announced by the state government and 343 released.

In a series of tweets on Friday, Mallam Shehu said he did not mean to downplay the seriousness of the kidnapping of the students.

He said that he was given the figure he quoted by another person who he said should ordinarily know the facts.
