Details where the Katsina Schoolboys abducted by bandits were taken to have been made public.
The Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari, has revealed that bandits who kidnapped some schoolboys from the Government Science Secondary School, Kankara took them to a forest in Zamfara state.
Recall that the students were kidnapped last week Friday.
Masari, who was interviewed by BBC Hausa on Wednesday, revealed that his government was negotiating with the kidnappers to ensure the release of the students.
He said, "They are in Zamfara forests; we have gotten the information."
Masari said he had started a dialogue with the abductors, assuring Nigerians that his administration would secure the students' release.
"We are negotiating with those that have abducted the students, and we want to ensure that we secure their release," he added.
He, however, refuted the allegation that the notorious Boko Haram kidnaped the students.
