One of the Mothers of the abducted students of the Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, in the Kankara Local Government Area of Katsina State on Sunday, led a protest, demanding prompt rescue of students abducted by bandits on Friday night.
The protesters, who were carrying placards with various messages like, ‘We want our children back’, we want security in Kankara, and Government must speak out; marched around the school’s premises and some parts of the town, chanting songs seeking the rescue of the abducted students.
On the other hand, a Coalition of Northern Groups has threatened to organise students and youths for a protest in Katsina state if the abducted students were not rescued on time.
Jamiu Aliyu, the chairman of the North-West zone of the group, while addressing a press conference in Katsina condemned the act and blast government for failing to protect the young students.
“We condemn in totality this barbaric act and call for the immediate arrest and prosecution of the culprits, we equally stress the inability of the government to protect those young, innocent, vibrant students from this horrible attack as uncalled for.
“Failure of the government to rescue the missing students within the shortest period of time, CNG will not hesitate to mobilize hundreds of thousands on the streets of Katsina state for a continuous protest, until the students are fully rescued, even if it’s going to cost our lives.”
