President Muhammadu has condemned the abduction of some students from the Government Science College, Kagara, in the Rafi local government area of Niger state.
The president in a statement through a presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu, disclosed that he has directed the armed forces and police to ensure the immediate and safe return of all the captives.
The statement partly read: “The President has also dispatched to Minna, Niger State a team of security chiefs to coordinate the rescue operation and meet with state officials, community leaders, as well as parents and staff of the College.”
He urged members of the armed forces to do everything necessary to secure the release of the students and prevent a repeat of the attacks on schools in the future.
The presidency said:
“President Buhari has assured of the support of his administration to the Armed Forces in their brave struggle against terrorism and banditry and urged them to do all that can be done to bring an end to this saga, and avoid such cowardly attacks on schools in the future.”
Buhari said the families of the victims of the attack remain in the prayers of Nigerians.
The demand was part of the Senate’s resolution on Wednesday, February 17 as a holistic response to the mounting security challenges across the country.
