The news of Ibrahim’s death broke hours after the state government met with representatives of the grieving parents of the missing students at the Government House in the state capital.

This comes as Fatima Shamaki and the other abducted students prepare to spend their 15th night in the captivity of the bandits.

On March 12,  a group of armed men attacked the school – coming after the attacks by bandits on schools in Katsina, Niger, and Zamfara States.

But the military said it promptly responded to the attack as troops of Quick Response Force of 1 Division of the Nigerian Army mobilised to prevent the bandits from kidnapping the staff and students of the school.

As soon as the security operatives arrived in the school, they were said to have engaged the assailants in a gunfight.

This according to the military, led to the rescue of 180 people, comprising 132 male students, 40 female students, and eight civilian staff.
