Mustapha Inuwa, secretary to Katsina state government, told TheCable on Friday that the meeting would take place at the presidential lodge of the government house.

Inuwa spoke through Abdullahi Yar’Adua, his media aide.

TheCable observed that some of the schoolboys looked unhealthy, traumatised and were limping.

One of the boys told TheCable that they trekked for over three hours in the forest before they could get to their abductors’ hideout.

He said they were fed with only groundnut cake, better known as Kuli-Kuli, and sweet potatoes, and that “most of us were not even given anything”.

The pupils were taken to Katsina Hajj camp for medical checkup and clothing.
