Kinshasa, 3 juin 2021(ACP).-  Un haut responsable de l’Etat de Niger, dans le centre-nord du Nigeria, a confirmé mercredi que des hommes armés avaient enlevé, dimanche, 136 élèves à la suite de leur attaque contre une école de la ville de Tegina dans son Etat, ont rapporté, jeudi, les agences de presse internationale.

Les sources indiquent que lors d’une conférence de presse à Minna, la capitale de l’Etat de Niger, Ahmed Mohammed Ketso, gouverneur adjoint de l’Etat, a confirmé cet enlèvement par des hommes armés à l’école islamique Salihu Tanko à Tegina.

Il a déclaré que le gouvernement faisait de son mieux pour le retour en toute sécurité des élèves kidnappés et a réitéré la volonté du gouvernement d’apporter un soutien continu aux agences de sécurité.

Le gouverneur adjoint a ajouté que ces agences étaient prudentes dans la poursuite des ravisseurs pour éviter des dommages collatéraux. ACP/ Zng/GGK/MNI
