A protest was held in Kastina State on Sunday over the abduction of schoolboys from Katsina State’s Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Kankara Local Government Area.
On Friday night, the demonstrators demanded the prompt rescue of students abducted by bandits.
According to sources, a woman identified as one of the mothers of the abducted students led the demonstration.
The protesters went around the premises of the school and some parts of the city bearing placards conveying different messages, like “Government must speak out,” “We want our children back,” and We want safety in Kankara.”
Songs demanding the rescue of the kidnapped students were also chanted by the demonstrators.
The chairman of the North-West zone of the group, Jamiu Aliyu while addressing a press conference in Katsina said, “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.”
