KanyiDaily had reported how hundreds of GSS boading schoolboys were abducted by gunmen on Friday night, December 11, 2020, less than 24 hours after President Muhammadu Buhari arrived Katsina for a week long private visit.

On Tuesday, Boko Haram claimed responsibility for the abduction, saying the action was carried out to ‘promote Islam and discourage un-Islamic practices’.

However, Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari insisted that the missing students were abducted by local bandits known to them, contrary to the claim of Boko Haram.

But in footage released by the terrorist group on Thursday, hundreds of young boys could be seen in the forest identifying themselves as the abducted Katsina school boys.

In the six-minute-and-30-second footage, some of the boys, looking distraught, appealed to the Nigerian Government to cooperate with their abductors so that they can be freed.

The relatively older schoolboy who spoke urged the government to settle amicably with their abductors and advised against the use of military force in rescuing them.

“Please help us. Tell the vigilantes and soldiers not to come around,” the older boy in the video said, adding “more than 500 of us are in the forest”.

“Close any form of school, including Islamiyah. Please send the army back. They can’t do anything to help us. Please sir, we need your assistance,” the distraught boy said.

At the end of the video, a voice believed to be that of Abubakar Shekau, leader of the Boko Haram group, said, “he was doing Allah’s work”.

Shekau said he was happy with the operation because many people thought he was lying when he claimed responsibility for the abduction.

“Even if I didn’t say anything, here are my people speaking and here are your boys speaking too,” he said.
