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.
