“As at today (Monday), information available to me shows that 17 of the missing children have been found. 15 of them were found around Dinya in Danmusa (LGA). I was informed by the DPO. One other was found through them and the last, the father called that his son has returned home.”
“All these missing children found have been reunited with their families since we have shut down schools.”
“Majority of the students were in the forest in Zamfara. Efforts are on for their rescue.”
