The abducted students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina, have been freed.
The Special Adviser to the Katsina Governor on Security, Ibrahim Kastina, who broke the news on Thursday night, said the students are currently on their way to the government house from the hideout of their abductors.
He said the students were freed on Thursday at Tsafe (82.5km via road) from Kankara town in Katsina State where they were abducted.
The whereabouts of over 300 students have been unknown since Friday night when gunmen attacked the school.
Boko Haram later claimed responsibility for the incident but Katisna state Governor, Aminu Masari, insisted bandits were behind the attack.
