Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari, has apologised to Nigerians, for giving what could be described as misleading information on the abduction of hundreds of Schoolboys from the Government Science Secondary School, in Kankara, Katsina State, Page 36 learnt.
Recall, that the Presidential Spokesman had claimed that only 10 of the Students were abducted by the gunmen.
However, the abducted Students later turned out to be not fewer than 340.
Posting on his Facebook page, Garba Shehu said that the numbers he released were provided by persons that should ideally know.
His words: “I apologise 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.”
