Zamfara Students Abduction: A Domino Effect of Ailing System

It is saddened that barely one week when, at least, 42 people, including 27 students were kidnapped in Kagara, Niger state, and are yet to be released, another incident of abduction has taken place at the Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara State, where over 300 girls have been confirmed kidnapped by gunmen.

This incessant attack on our schools and students is alarming and the Friday’s attack on the innocent girls of the Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara State, is one too many for all Nigerian students. Thus, we are not only, in strong term, condemning the dastardly act, but also making a very strong call on the Commander-in-Chief of Armed Forces, Presiddent Mohammadu Buhari; the Defence Minister, Maj. Gen. Bashir Magashi and all the new Security Chiefs to be more alert to their major responsibilities of securing the lives and property of all citizens.

That the assailants dressed as government security forces and carried out their operation without a glitch, is a clear indication of the prevailing porosity in the nations security operations and the general ailing status of governance in the country.

For us at the level NANS Zone D, we are bored by the usual weak-willed of the Federal Government in stamping out prevailing kidnapping, banditry, and herdsmen attacks in the country. We want actions. The government should declare war on these criminals that are taking peace away from Nigerians and making Nigeria a not-fit-to-live-in nation.

President Buhari must be reminded of his promise to make Nigeria a safer and better place for all and tackle the menace of insurgency, kidnapping, banditry and herdsmen attacks.

While we empathize with entire NANS, especially our members in Zone A, because an injury to one is an injury to all. We also feel sympathy with the parents, guardians, families and teachers of the abducted girls. We pray for prompt rescue of our dear students.

It’s on this note, we are given Federal Government a week ultimatum to bring back our students and find a lasting solution to all these challenges or else they will face the wrath of Nigerian Students.

Aluta Continua, Victoria Ascerta.

Kowe Odunayo Amos.
