‘We Were Forced To Eat Leaves And Drink From Dirty Brooks’ – Kankara Schoolboy Narrates Ordeal With Abductors



The parents, about 30 of them, have continued to keep vigil at the school in the hope of getting some news about their children.

According to TheCable, one of the students who was kidnapped from Government Science Secondary School, Kankara in Katsina state, has spoken about his experiences after he escaped from the abductors.

TheCable visited the school on Wednesday and saw some parents of the abducted children seated in groups and discussing their plight.

The parents, about 30 of them, have continued to keep vigil at the school in the hope of getting some news about their children.

Gunmen attacked the school around midnight last Friday, kidnapping over 300 students.

About 333 schoolboys were confirmed missing by the state government, though it later announced that 17 of them have been found.

A source at the school told TheCable that some of the schoolboys who escaped during a headcount by the gunmen in the forest, said 520 of them were counted.

The escaped schoolboy said they were beaten like cattle and made to eat wild leaves as well as drink from dirty brooks used by grazing animals.

The parents of the abducted schoolboys have asked the state government to release names of the 17 students who it said were found shortly after the attack.

Aminu Masari, governor of Katsina, had said the government was in touch with the gunmen, and that 17 of the schoolboys had been found.

Bashir Hamisu, one of the parents who spoke with TheCable and whose son Mujahid Abdul, 12, was abducted, said they heard 17 students were found, but that they were yet to know who they are.

“We are yet to see or hear from the students. We call on the government to release them or their identities, so that they could be reunited with their families,” he said.

On Wednesday, names and exclusive photos of some of the abducted students were released.
