The Police Command in Kebbi State has said it is yet to ascertain the number of students kidnapped from Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri, Ngaski Local Government Area of the state on Thursday.
The command’s spokesman, DSP Nafi’u Abubakar, said in a statement issued in Birnin Kebbi on Friday that reports doing the rounds that 50 students were kidnapped from the school were false.
He said: “The attention of the police has been drawn to reports made by some media stations that a police vehicle was used in kidnapping about 50 students of the FGC.
“A white Hilux van with registration number kBSJ 29 belonging to a High Court judge with inscription of Kebbi State Judiciary, hijacked by bandits on Birnin Yauri road, was the one used in the kidnapping and not a police vehicle as stated by some media stations.
“The command wishes to make it clear and set the records straight that a number of students are still missing as rescue operation is still ongoing.”
Abubakar expressed the command’s commitment to brief members of the media as events unfolded.
He urged the public and media to ensure their information was correct before drawing conclusions.
