In the early hours of Wednesday, bandits stormed the school, killing one student and kidnapping 27 students, three teachers and 12 family members.

On Friday, rumours were rife after popular Islamic cleric Sheikh Ahmad Gumi met with the bandits, that the kidnappers had released the students and others.

But Bello denounced the release rumours, saying that the students and others were still held captive.

The governor, however, said the government was in the last stage of negotiations with the bandits.

He promised that they would soon release the victims.
