Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for a kidnapping of about 300 school boys in northwestern Nigeria. The militant group released an audio message saying they attacked the government boarding school in Katsina state. Authorities initially described the attackers as 'bandits'. Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari has been heavily criticised for the government's inability to stop such attacks, and it is particularly embarrassing as Katsina is his home state.
