LAGOS (Reuters) - Dozens of the 344 kidnapped boys freed from their captors in northwest Nigeria were seen arriving at local government buildings in the city of Katsina on Friday, a Reuters witness said.

Their rescue was announced by the governor of northwest Katsina state late on Thursday. Last Friday night, gunmen raided the Government Science Secondary School in Kankara town, Katsina state.
