President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, has apologized over his claims on the number of Government Science Secondary School, GSSS, students abducted in Kankara, Katsina State.
Shehu had said only 10 students were abducted from GSSS
His claim was at variance with that of the state Governor, Bello Masari.
Masari had said thatabout 333 students were abducted from GSSS in the state.
After intervention of security operatives, the students were last night released.
Apologising for his error, Shehu explained that he was misled by those who should “ideally know.”
In a statement he signed, the presidential spokesman said: “I apologize for the incorrect communication citing that only 10 students were kidnapped at the science school, Kankara.
“This communication of numbers was provided by persons that should ideally know. These numbers were seen to conflict with what was available at that time.
“Please understand that this communication was in no way done to downplay the seriousness of the situation.
“Please accept my sincere apologies on this matter as we continue to move our great Nation Nigeria forward. Thank you.”
